About CF Cycle for Life
Join us for our Fourth Annual Actavis 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 along the Towpath Trail of either 26/65 miles; or 62/100 miles on the road. As an additional unique short-route option, some participants can “hitch a ride” back to our Celebration Party on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (for a 13-mile ride). The Celebration Party is held at the Winking Lizard Tavern (Peninsula) -- where all routes start & finish.
“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, 2014
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!
02/01/15 thru 06/30/15 $20.00

How to Get Your Wheels In Motion:
Register today as a Cycle Team Leader or Individual Cyclist!
The Actavis 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. 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 the 62/100-Mile Road Ride, which is a challenging (hilly) option for road cyclists.
For everyone's safety, CF Cycle for Life participants must follow all applicable rules and regulations. We will provide you with the CF 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 Aboard” and help a great cause!
