About CF Cycle for Life

We are excited to announce that this year’s CF Cycle for Life will offer an IN-PERSON option and we will be joining the Bikes & Beers event!

This ride features a 15, 30, and 45-Mile ride departing from Two Roads Brewing and traveling through the beautiful Stratford area of Connecticut. All rides feature morning fuel stations, fully marked routes, GPS turn-by-turn instructions, rest stops, refreshments, ride marshals, and SAG support. Finish back at Two Roads Brewing for a festival of rewarding craft beers, live music, and much more! All riding levels welcome! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the featured charity for this year’s event. 

We will continue to offer a virtual component if you would like to join us from your neighborhood, a stationary bike, spin studio, or anywhere in the world!
