Central Florida CF Cycle for Life 2020 Wine to Waves Virtual Challenge

IMPORTANT NOTE: To protect the health and well-being of the cystic fibrosis community and CF Foundation staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, the cystic fibrosis community is finding new ways to come together through virtual experiences. While we will not be together in person, we can be together in spirit and participate virtually - showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis.

About CF Cycle for Life


How do I participate?

Take the Challenge. Beginning Tuesday, September 1 through Wednesday, September 30, CF Cycle for Life – Oregon and CF Cycle for Life – Central Florida are coming together for a special virtual ride. Join us as we embark on a virtual cycle tour round trip from Portland, OR to Orlando, FL, where we will be riding a CUMULATIVE 6,500 miles! This is the round-trip distance between both of our rides to celebrate our 65th Anniversary and take part in our national 65 Roses Challenge. Log your miles in our Wine to Waves Strava club throughout the month of September, riding indoors or outdoors, ride as many or as few as you would like, again this is cumulative campaign-wide goal! Registration is FREE and you can do this ride on all types of bikes: road, dirt, gravel, stationary, etc.!!

Register to Participate Virtually. Register and participate virtually in the Wine to Waves Challenge and help us stay the course and advance our mission in an uncertain time.

There will be no registration fee to participate virtually and any fees paid prior to this announcement will be credited to your fundraising efforts.

Recruit. Recruit others to participate with you (at a safe distance or even from another state). Now that we are virtual, you can participate anywhere! ALL bike types are welcome: road, gravel, dirt, stationary, etc.!

Fundraise. Fundraise online by leveraging the tools in the Participant Center, the mobile app, and Fundraise on Facebook to reach your goal. Create a virtual passion fundraising event by developing a fundraising event through your favorite hobby, activity, or passion.
