Metro DC CF Cycle for Life


About CF Cycle for Life

This is our 10th annual Cycle for Life ride and we are celebrating by offering the option to ride together or participate virtually – your choice.  We will still have a virtual component if you would like to join us via a stationary bike, spin studio, or anywhere in the world!

Our in-person option is to join in a local ride on October 23rd hosted by Bikes & Beers at Rocket Frog Brewing Company in Sterling VA.

This ride features a 15, 30, and 45-Mile ride departing from ROCKET FROG BREWING and traveling through the beautiful region of Sterling, VA. 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 ROCKET FROG 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 the featured charity for this ride.
