About CF Cycle for Life

Join us for our annual Cycle for Life ride on Saturday, October 15th at the Rhinegeist Brewery Distribution Facility in Cincinnati, OH! This year we are very excited to share that we are riding with a professional bike tour company - Bikes & Beers - to completely redesign the Cycle for Life experience in Cincinnati, complete with a brewery afterparty.

Our 2022 CF Cycle for Life event will feature in-person and virtual experiences to help make a difference for all people living with cystic fibrosis. We can’t wait to bring the CF community together for CF Cycle for Life!

Rhinegeist Brewery Distribution Facility – 3241 Spring Grove Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45202

This year’s ride features a 15, 30, and 45-Mile ride departing from the Rhinegeist Brewery Distribution Facility and traveling through the beautiful city of Cincinnati, Ohio. All rides will feature morning fuel stations, fully marked routes, GPS turn-by-turn instruction, rest stops with refreshments, ride marshals, and SAG support. Finish up back at Rhinegeist for a festival atmosphere of rewarding craft beers, live music, & much more!

This is a ride for everyone - all riding levels welcome! The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a featured charity for this year’s event.
