The Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) and Lighthouse Community Care are holding the 2nd Ride Around the Lake charity ride at Lake Illawarra on Saturday 8th May, 2010.
The main event will be a 40km ride around Lake Illawarra, starting and finishing at the Illawarra Yacht Club (Northcliffe Drive, Warrawong) at 8am, with two more waves starting at 8:15am and 8:30am. For those not interested in riding 40km there are shorted 9 km and 4km Kid’s club rides starting shortly afterwards the long route rides leave.
The Ride Around the Lake 40km Circuit is only open to cyclists aged 12 years and older. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Beginners’ Loop (4km or 9km options) cyclists must be 6 years or older. Kids’ Club cyclists must be under 6 years old.
Ride Around the Lake aims to raise much needed funds for the lighthouse community centre local youth housing initiative called ‘My Place’. The funds will go directly to a facility providing accommodation and mentoring for displaced young people. A portion will also go directly to MS Australia to support their programs and services for people living with MS while a search for a cure continues.
