About the Event:


Join us for the 2012 Colorado Aptalis CF Cycle for Life®. Our Cycle for Life 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. The70-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 screaming fans to cheer you on. Don’t forget the post event festivities full of food and fun to wind down after your long ride!

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 biking for a great cause! So what are you waiting for? 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®.  Bike helmets are required to ride.

Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis, individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death.

Despite this policy, there might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. Learn more about alternative ways in which a person with B. cepacia can participate, or call the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.

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.
