About CF Cycle for Life

Join us for our annual bicycle event (10/7/2017), as we ride through some of the most breathtaking scenery in St. Charles County, MO. Our riders LOVE our unique Start/Finish Location at St. Charles County Smartt Field Airport.

The CF Cycle for Life morning begins with a nutritious breakfast to fuel each rider for the fully-supported ride option of their choice: 25, 50 or Century.  Riders rave about our fully-stocked and themed rest stops that reinvigorate them every 10-12 miles.  You feel completely safe during the ride due to the strong presence of bicycle mechanics, ride marshals, motorcycle marshals & SAG support. When you fly past the finish line and accept your finisher medal to the sounds of cheering volunteers and festive music, you will know that your accomplishment was so much bigger than completing an endurance event: You will have helped us get closer to the cure; thus, bettering the lives of those affected by cystic fibrosis.  Celebrate your successful mission with fellow riders at the victory party with a delicious meal and beer.  We hope you join us for the 2017 CF Cycle for Life!
