Charlotte CF Cycle for Life 2017


About CF Cycle for Life

Get your wheels in motion and join us for the 6th Annual CF Cycle for Life (CFL) in a BRAND NEW LOCATION!  We will be starting and ending the ride at The Foundry, right behind Bank of America Stadium, and riding through the cycle friendly outskirts of Charlotte. CFL is a fully-supported ride with 15-mile, 35-mile and 70-mile route options. From breakfast to our cycle post party, you can enjoy fully stocked rest stops every 8-12 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.  This is not a race, so we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the ride! We would love for your friends and family to join us at Draught for the after party to cheer you on as you finish! Friends and Family tickets will be available on ride day for $10 and will include food and one drink ticket. Kids under 16 years old are free.
