2016 Lorie's Lakeside Century

Saturday, September 17th, 2016 


Lorie’s Lakeside Century is for experienced riders, novices, individuals and groups – with routes of 26, 39, 62, 75 and 100 miles.  It’s a tour, not a race, so you can ride at any pace you choose.  The terrain is flat to gently rolling, hilly but no “killers.”  All routes travel to Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Ride through Victorian-era towns and farmland on scenic back roads and enjoy incredible views along Lake Michigan.  Rest and re-group at sag stops that highlight some of the spots we treasure.  And experience Hoosier Hospitality at its finest!

In memory of Lorie Kirkley, the ride benefits the Visiting Nurse Association of Porter County, a nonprofit organization providing compassionate home health and hospice care to those in need in the community.

See the Ride Details section under the "About the Ride" tab for more information.


$100 Pledge Getter “Free Ride” – If you plan on having $100 in pledges/donations turned in by the day of the ride, your registration will be waived, you will receive ONE FREE 2015 t-shirt and you will get a “memory/honor” sign, with your loved one’s name, that will be placed at a SAG stop along your route. Go to the Fundraising tab to print the pledge sheet and for pledge getting tips.
