LakeErieLoop (LEL)  Frequently Asked Questions

What's this all about? 

It is a race (technically a rally) - We start at 6am sharp on Saturday morning, just south of Wellington Ohio.  You ride your bike around Lake Erie. First one back wins!

Can I ride a Bigger bike, over 250CC?
YES! You can ride any bike in the event, but you CAN NOT RACE! We call it the "touring class" and you get to ride along, but for just for fun and the great scenery (and you still get to ride with with some great, perhaps even legendary, motorcyclists).

What will I need?
You will need a Passport to cross the border. We suggest rain gear, extra cash and a credit card. A helmet and good clothing (layers) and boots.  A cell phone and a few basic tools are suggested. Many "racers" carry a little extra fuel and snacks too, just to keep stops to a minimum.

The event starts and ends at Clare Mar Lakes Campground so most people stay there.  The camp sites are great, they have lots of RV parking and they even rent cabins for reasonable rates!  We will serve meals Friday night, snacks and coffee Saturday morning before the race, Saturday night meal after the race, and breakfast on Sunday.

How much does it cost?

$50 to race or $25 to just ride (remember it is for a good cause) plus $24 bucks for meals.... (bring extra cash for shirts and other LEL stuff, hint, hint, etc.)   Camping rates are $25 for a basic site with electricity (deluxe sites with water, sewer, etc. may cost extra), and up to $200 for a cabin. Rates are for Friday and Saturday night.

When is it?
 You need to arrive sometime on Friday in time to get registered and get some rest!  The event starts at 6AM Saturday morning, rain or shine.  The event ends Sunday after breakfast and our special "awards ceremony" and auction.

Do I have to race?

NO!!!!! you ride as fast as you want!  Stop as often as you want! You can ride ANY (legal) bike you want, taking any route you want!  So don't worry, just come for a GREAT road trip for a good cause! The roads around Lake Erie are fun to ride.  The views of the lake all add up to a great road trip!

My bike is old, what it breaks down!!?

We REALLY like the Vintage bikes (and the newer ones too!)  This is an opportunity for you to get that old bike out and enjoy it! Taking any motorcycle out of the country is both exciting, but also scary... But rest easy! There are lots of us, and there will be a someone available to pick you and your bike up should you break down or have to quit for any reason. So relax and have a great time, you wont get left behind!

Things to think about.

Use a little common sense. You will be on a motorcycle for potentially12+ hours. Consider seat pads, wind screens, sun screen, layered clothing, a good helmet, a bottle of water, snacks, GPS and/or a map. There are plenty of gas stations along the way should you forget some items, but think about how weather can change in one day.  You bike needs to be ready, fresh oil, good tires and chain. It must be licensed and insured. And you MUST have that passport!

Where the heck is it?

We start at the Clare Mar Lakes Campground, a few miles south of Wellington, Ohio. Take Ohio SR58 south to New London Eastern Road, then turn west and watch for the campground about 1.5 miles down on the left.
