About CF Cycle for Life

Join us for our 3nd Annual CF Cycle for Life, a one-day scenic bike ride through the Summit County Metroparks and Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

All participants will have the choice of several out & back options of either a 26 or 65 mile route to enjoy the fall foliage along the Towpath Trail, one of Ohio’s most beautiful trails.  As an additional short-route option, some participants can “hitch a ride” back to our Celebration Party at the Winking Lizard Tavern on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (13-mile ride).

New in 2014:  For an additional challenge, we have added a century road ride (100-mile loop course), which will also begin and end at the same location as our towpath ride.

“I have participated in both CF Cycle For Life events.  Not only is this a great cause, but it’s a well organized ride that is well signed, safe and along a beautiful route.  Most important to me…one of the best aspects of this ride is the party at the end!
CF Cycle for Life Cyclist, 2013

All cycling routes are fully supported rides with well-stocked rest stops; support vehicles; ride marshals along the way to cheer you on; and bike mechanics to help you if you need a repair.  A registration fee and minimum fundraising commitment of $175.00 are required to participate, with the opportunity to win other great prizes!

Registration Fees:
02/01/14 thru 06/30/14    $20.00
07/01/14 thru 08/31/14    $35.00
09/01/14 thru 09/20/14    $50.00

Participants under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle For Life®. Bike helmets are required to ride.

How to Get Your Wheels in Motion:
Register today as a Cycle Team Leader or Individual Cyclist!

The CF Cycle for Life is a pledge event. In addition to the registration fee we require all cyclists to raise a minimum fundraising amount ($175.00) to participate.  Your support allowed us to raise $71,953 in 2013.  Our goal in 2014 is $100,000!

Registration fees are not tax deductible and do not count towards your fundraising total. However, your minimum pledge requirement is tax deductible and must be turned in on or before event date.

The minimum pledge requirement is due on or before event day, and entitles you to a long-sleeve official event T-shirt.  However, you will have a month after the event to keep fundraising.  By doing so, you have an opportunity to earn other great cycling prizes (see prizes on web site)!   

Please note, due to the terrain on the towpath trail we encourage our cyclists to either ride a recreational, mountain, hybrid or cross bike.  Road cycles can be ridden on the trail, but are not ideal. For this reason, we have added a 100-Mile Century Ride, which is an all-road option!

For everyone's safety, Cycle for Life participants must follow all applicable rules and regulations.   We will provide you with the Cycle for Life “Rules of the Road” in the cycle guide, which will be provided subsequent to your registration.  Bike helmets are required to ride.

Get in shape, join the fun…“Bike Aboardand help a great cause!  For more information, contact the CF Foundation; Northern Ohio Chapter: (216) 475-CURE.
