Chicago CF Cycle for Life 2018


About CF Cycle for Life

Each year, thousands of riders join forces in the fight against CF, pedaling along scenic routes and across multiple distances in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Whether you’re a first-time participant or a professional cyclist, you can turn your passion into progress and inspire change through what you love.  Get your wheels in motion and join us for our 2018 annual bicycle event as we ride through some of the most picturesque and scenic terrain at Kuipers Family Farm in Kane County, Illinois!

Greater Illinois’ CF Cycle for Life is a fully-supported ride with route options of 10, 30 and 65 miles. Expect amazing energy, themed rest stops, and an incredible finish-line celebration at these daylong rides.  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, and support vehicles to help you complete the ride. 

CF Cycle for Life provides a great opportunity for companies and groups of friends and family members to come together and ride in support of a worthy cause.  If you are a biking enthusiast, take your ride to the next level by signing up for CF Cycle for Life and help add tomorrows to the lives of those with cystic fibrosis today!
