About the Event: 2013 INFORMATION COMING SOON!


Join us for our third annual bike tour as we ride through some of the most scenic terrains in Georgia. You have a choice of three mileage options: 15 miles, 30 miles or 65 miles. Cycle at your own pace.

Your registration includes training rides, commemorative long sleeved t-shirt, and a one of a kind experience.  Raise $750 or more and receive the 2012 Aptalis CF Cycle for Life® jersey!  We require cyclists to raise a minimum of $165 to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle for Life®.  With the help of volunteers like you, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is able to fund vital research and therapies for those affected by CF.

Participants under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle For Life®.  Bike helmets are required to ride.

Prizes 

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.
