About CF Cycle for Life

Get your wheels in motion and join us for our annual bicycle event on Saturday, August 26, 2017 as we ride through some of the most picturesque and scenic terrain in Northern Ohio, along the TOWPATH TRAIL, featuring well-stocked rest stops and a festive post ride celebration at the finish with entertainment and great food!  

Cycle at your own pace, as this is not a race, but a recreational (fully supported) ride to raise funds for a great cause!  Cyclists have the option to choose any distance from 10-65 miles, and can “BIKE ABOARD” the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad at any of the TRAIN STOPS along the towpath and ride the train back to the START/FINISH, at Quaker Steak & Lube in Valley View, OH.

From breakfast to our cycle post party, you can enjoy fully stocked rest stops every 10-12 miles, bike mechanics for bicycle maintenance and repair, ride marshals to cheer you along the way and plenty of support vehicles to help you complete the ride. This unique event empowers participants to take action and demonstrate their fight in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis in a tangible, emotional and powerful way.

RIDE WITH A FRIEND, RELATIVE, OR COLLEAGUE: This is the best way to make this an even more meaningful day – while helping a great cause! 

Registration Fee Schedule: 

06/01/17 - 08/20/17= $30.00

Thank you for adding tomorrows for people with cystic fibrosis.
