Wisconsin CF Cycle for Life 2016


About CF Cycle for Life

Welcome to year two of the Wisconsin CF Cycle For Life!  We're proud to continue one of Milwaukee's elite group of rides that highlight its urban landscape along with its newly upgraded trails and street lanes. With a 7 mile route for beginners, a 25 mile route highlighting restaurant stops along the course and a 50 showcasing the Oak Leaf Trail for veteran riders, CF Cycle For Life has something for everyone. We offer fully stocked rest stops every 10-12 miles and featured Milwaukee restaurants serving up treats for the riders; you’ll have plenty of support and cheer to help you pedal your way towards a cure.  We are very pleased to announce that Wheel and Sprocket will provide our exclusive ride support on the route!

Starting and finishing at Lakefront Brewery, we'll celebrate the ride and our fundraising in style. We'll provide a small breakfast and yoga in the morning followed by a full lunch, libations, music and general revelry post ride. 

We're fine tuning the routes for 2016 but they will be very similar to the originals from our inaugural year as we got the nod from Wheel and Sprocket that these were some great courses through the urban jungle of Milwaukee:

Sweet 7
Tasty 25
Nifty Fifty
