About CF Cycle for Life

Online Registration is officially closed, but cyclists can register at event on Saturday, October 11. Cyclists registering onsite are responsible
for the $175 fundraising minimum, in addition to the onsite registration fee of $35.

In order to ride, each cyclist must reach the Minimum Pledge Requirement: $175

Cycle for Life is a rain or shine event, so we are moving forward with Cycle for Life as planned. We would only have to delay or cancel if severe/dangerous weather ensued. If we have to make that call, we will post a message on Facebook, but we don't anticipate that happening. We can't wait to see you on Saturday - it's going to be great!

Location of Start/Finish & Registration: TR Hughes Ballpark Overflow Lot (900 T.R. Hughes Blvd, O'Fallon, MO 63366) across TR Hughes Blvd from the ballpark, NOT in front of the ballpark.

We'd like to officially induct our top 2 fundraisers into the Highflyer Club:
Tom Burke - Congrats on hitting Aviator Level
Darren Ridenhour - Congrats on hitting Flyboy Level

We'd like to officially induct our top 3 teams into the Officers' Club:
The Staenberg Group
Mike's Mob
Hermetic Motor Division of Emerson

Check out CF Cycle for Life's 2014 Transformation! We added a Century Ride AND moved our event to the fall. Join us for the last Hurrah of the Cycle Season on October 11, 2014!

Get your wheels in motion and join us for our 10/11/2014 annual bike tour as we ride through some of the most picturesque and scenic terrain in St. Charles County, Missouri. CF Cycle for Life is a fully-supported ride with route options of 25, 50 & 100 miles. 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. We'll have live music throughout the day for all to enjoy! Not for a Billion, the Daugherty Party Band will play in the morning during registration. As you sip a nice cold beer and enjoy a delicious array of food during the best post-race victory party of the year, you'll enjoy live music provided by Pocketchange Blues Band and Deaf Mefford. We hope you join us for this unique event that empowers participants to take action and demonstrate their fight in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis in a tangible, emotional and powerful way.

We ask that each cyclist join in our fight to cure CF by fundraising $175. When you register, you will automatically be set up with your own online fundraising webpage, which will make fundraising incredibly easy!

2014 THEME

We're excited to announce that this year's Cycle for Life theme is World War II Aviation/Fly Me to the Cure. We are thrilled to host one of our rest stops inside the Commemorative Air Force hangar at St. Charles County Smartt Field Airport! The 50-miler & Century cyclists will ride through the hangar, grab some nosh, and then cycle down the airport taxiway as they continue on their adventure. Kerri Ryan, local singer & DJ, will be providing some great entertainment at this rest stop. This will also serve as a cheering zone for families and friends to congregate and encourage the cyclists! The World War II Aviation/Fly Me to the Cure theme will also be played up at the Start/Finish Area for all cyclists to enjoy. Thanks to St. Charles County Smartt Field Airport, Commemorative Air Force, and Kerri Ryan!
