Cleveland/Akron CF Cycle for Life 2018


About CF Cycle for Life

Get your wheels in motion and join us for our annual Cycle for Life Saturday, September 15th, 2018, as we ride through some of the most picturesque and scenic terrain in Northern Ohio along the Towpath Trail. You will enjoy stocked rest stops, ride marshals to cheer you along the way, and plenty of support 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.

Cycle at your own pace, as this is not a race, but a recreational (supported) ride to raise funds for a great cause! Cyclists have the option to choose any distance from 10-60 miles and can also “BIKE ABOARD” the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad at any of the train stops along the towpath and ride the train back to the start finish line for the post ride festivities!

RIDE WITH A FRIEND, RELATIVE, OR COLLEAGUE: This is the best way to make this an even more meaningful day – while helping a great cause!
