Why We Ride
CF Cycle for Life is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's premier cycling event. Each year, thousands of cyclists gather in dozens of cities across the nation to take part in an exciting effort to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has led the way in the fight against CF and fueled extraordinary medical and scientific progress. Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has helped advance the development of more than a dozen CF treatments, and added decades of life for those with CF. Thanks to this work, the life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years.
Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease.
CF Cycle for Life provides a fantastic opportunity for companies, 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 those with CF live longer, healthier lives. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
