Tour de Lake Description
Come out and enjoy a fun day on the bike with a great loop around scenic Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey's largest lake. The 20 Mile Course will run clockwise around the lake and consists of 19.7 miles of rolling terrain. The course is not flat, but there are no monster hills that might discourage those who are looking for an enjoyable ride.
Both course start and end at the same location, and the last several miles of each course are shared.
Riders will receive their finishing time and placing.
Ride for fun or go for the best time!
A CHANGE FOR 2016: There will no longer be awards for the top finishers in the 40 or 20 mile events. The only awards given will be for the Cycle Craft Challenge. Results with the finishing order and times will still be posted.
