Join us for the 2013 Colorado Aptalis CF Cycle for Life® - Ride for 65 Roses presented by BJ's Restaurants. This event is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. There are three route options: 27, 44 and 70 miles. The 70 mile trek takes cyclists up Left Hand Canyon to the town of Ward, described as one of the top 100 climbs in the United States by Bicycling Magazine. You will travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops stocked full of snacks to fuel the journey and plenty of fans to cheer you on. After you cross the finish line, you'll enjoy post event festivities full of food and fun to wind down with your fellow riders!

No matter what route you choose you'll enjoy a fun day on your bike and enjoy some of the most scenic and gorgeous terrain this side of the Rocky Mountains, all while riding for a great cause! Sign up today and take the Ride of Your Life! Click the Register button and get started.

Participants under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle For Life® - Ride for 65 Roses presented by BJ's Restaurants. Bike helmets are required to ride.

All Cycle Routes
Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals who have ever had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) complex shall not attend any Foundation events. These requirements are because CF germs can be passed between individuals who have CF. B. cepacia in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. CF germs are not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. At any outdoor event, people with CF should keep at least 6 feet away from others with CF.

Despite this policy, individuals with CF might choose to attend events without informing the CF Foundation or without the Foundation’s knowledge. If so, they do so at their own risk. The Foundation accepts no responsibility for any risk to health involved in attendance, or in any social contact between persons with CF. For more information, please visit

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
