Race the Lake is an annual bike race that, despite it’s 88-mile length, attracts bicyclists of all skill levels, pro to beginner. Past year’s courses have even reached lengths of 100 miles. Much of the attraction can be attributed to the beautiful scenery found along the shores of Lake Winnebago.
The race starts in Fond du Lac and heads north along the west side of Lake Winnebago, running through Oshkosh, Neenah, Menasha, and Appleton. The halfway point at High Cliff State Park sees the course turn south south down Lake Winnebago’s eastern shore. The course then takes the riders through Calumetville, Marytown, and St. Peter, to finish up at Fond du Lac’s Lakeside Park.
