About CF Cycle for Life

Learn more about event day information

Get your wheels in motion and #RideForAReason! Join us for our annual bicycle event as we ride through some of the most picturesque and scenic terrain in Western Pennsylvania. CF Cycle For Life is a fully-supported 6.5 – 65 mile ride – perfect for beginners or advanced riders. This is the most fun you’ll have on two wheels - you are extremely taken care of! You can enjoy fully stocked rest stops, bike mechanics for bicycle maintenance and repair, ride marshals to cheer you along the way, and support vehicles to help you complete the ride. This year we will be riding through the hills of North Park with our more advanced course taking you to the Treesdale community and back. Virtual riders are welcomed too as we have a tight online community through our Facebook group and Strava Club!

You can cycle as an individual or gather your friends, family, and/or colleagues to join you as a team. The Pittsburgh CF Cycle for Life provides for a meaningful team building experience for any corporate group! For more questions, reach out to Jean – jschieman@cff.org.
