The Hub

The HUB of Lake Erie Cyclefest

Located at the Lake Erie Arboretum in Frontier Park

Whether it's the artist in you, your hipster spirit, the need for a weekend family gathering or a desire to hang out shore-side with fellow cyclists, the Erie Blues and Jazz Festival has something for everyone. And Lake Erie Cyclefest cyclists have access to prime festival real estate. Look for our tent adjacent to the Erie Blues and Jazz Festival's VIP tent.

Hang out, enjoy some beer from Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing and some light eats from some of Erie's local spots. Our HUB tent will be open on Saturday, Aug. 4 & 5.

The Lake Erie Cyclefest Hub is a message center, a place to register, packet pick up, lost and found, and a great place to hear music.

Bike Erie will host a guarded bike corral. You may want to throw a beach towel in your backpack as the Festival is open lawn seating.

Located at the Lake Erie Arboretum in Frontier Park across the street from the world's best chocolate store Romolo's in the 1400 block of West 8th Street.
