Lake Erie Cyclefest

Fitting for all ages and skill levels, the My PI Sunrise Ride provides the opportunity to become one with Presque Isle as you ride into the beauty and warmth of the rising sun. Along the way, you're encouraged to stop and be educated on various points of interest such as Waterworks, Perry Monument, North Pier, and the Presque Isle Lighthouse. Light breakfast refreshments will be provided at the Beach 11 halfway point, and the first 100 cyclists will take home a My PI Sunrise Ride fanny pack. Come celebrate and support Presque Isle's 100th anniversary with this fun and active challenge!
