About CF Cycle for Life

Get your wheels in motion and join us for our 8th annual bicycle event as we ride through some of the most picturesque and scenic terrain in Cincinnati and Northern KY. CF Cycle for Life is a fully-supported ride with options of 15-mile, 32-mile and 65-mile routes. 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.
