40, 65, and 100 mile Routes

12 Mile Family Fun Ride

The Lake Norman Excursion Ride has a long tradition among North Carolina cyclists. The ride was created by long time cyclist Mr. Dwight Calloway of Calloway Homes. Originally the ride ran from Denver along the beautiful shores of Lake Norman and offered a 100 mile circumnavigation of the lake. This year's routes are more rural / scenic routes through Iredell, Rowan and Catawba counties, because circumnavigation of Lake Norman isn't practical until more work is done on bikes lanes along the larger more developed roads. (see below for links to actual routes). The new routes will follow a few of the proposed roads on the Lake Norman Bike Route (LNBR); a regional bike circuit encompassing Lake Norman. Now in the planning stages, the main spine around the lake is intended to be 70 miles, with approximately 80 miles of excursion routes throughout the Lake area. Participating in this ride will also serve as advocacy to raise awareness for this important project,so that in the future we may again circumnavigate the lake.
