Wisconsin CF Cycle for Life 2017


About CF Cycle for Life

Welcome to Wisconsin's 3rd Annual CF Cycle For Life. We're proud to continue this unique event, highlighting Milwaukee's urban landscape and newly upgraded trails and street lanes. With a 25 mile route showcasing Milwaukee restaurants and a 50 mile route along the Oak Leaf Trail, CF Cycle For Life offers something for everyone. SAG riders and vehicles join our riders while several rest stops and featured Milwaukee restaurants serve specialty foods along the route. There will be plenty of support and cheer to help our riders pedal their way to a cure!

Starting and finishing at Lakefront Brewery, we'll celebrate the ride and our fundraising in style. Breakfast, lunch, beverages and music are provided pre and post ride.

Route Information:
Hero 0 – Earn your cycle gear and fundraise for a cure all while relaxing during the beautiful August afternoon.  No need to work up a sweat to make a difference, you’ll enjoy all the food and beverages at Lakefront.

Tasty 25 – Tour along the Lakefront and street paths to some of the best restaurants in the downtown area.  You’ll enjoy working up your appetite to refuel and refresh yourself 3 restaurants on the course which featured fresh beverages, breakfast burritos, bruschetta, cheesecake and more at Zak’s, Transfer Pizza and Sail Loft MKE.  

Nifty 50 – This long ride takes you through the East Side, Lakeshore State Park, the 3rd Ward, Bay View and all the way into South Milwaukee allowing you to thoroughly explore Milwaukee.  With 3 rest stops and SAG along the route, you’ll cruise around town and back to Lakefront Brewery for a much deserved lunch and beverages.
