bike the lake Bike the Lake 2019: This Sunday - 7am Nyon.

Bike the Lake is an informal, social, charity cycle ride for fit cyclists who want to cycle around Lake Geneva, in one day.


For starters, Bike the Lake is not a day for cyclists who are cycling against the clock, or those who want to beat a personal best.


It’s a day to cycle socially in groups of similarly paced cyclists, or to help get first timers around the lake with some old hands acting as bike buddies throughout the day.


    What Bike the Lake offers is:

  • An opportunity to cycle socially in groups of similar paced riders


  • Refreshment stops across the day at defined points around the lake


  • Support vehicles in case of technical problems


  • A chance to chat, meet and cycle with other social cyclists


  • An opportunity to raise some money while enjoying one of the best days out of the year.


Please note while there is no cost or obligation to enrol for Bike the Lake we like to recommend a CHF 100 contribution, either personally or through sponsorship to the nominated charity.

This year we are helping the KULE Foundation Kenya build a primary school so that young children don’t have to walk five kilometres every day for their schooling Click here to donate.


You can hear Nick Tucci talk about Bike the Lake and the Kule Foundation on the Breakfast Show with Mark and Katt:
