CF Cycle For Life

About the Event:

Join us on September 8, 2012 as we take on the challenge of the infamous Western Wisconsin rolling hills during our 2nd Annual Aptalis CF Cycle For Life® ride, benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 

You’ll have your choice of two scenic rural routes. 

The 25-mile route begins just outside of charming downtown Middleton, and takes you northwest through small towns and past historic barns surrounding the only Waunakee in the world.  Heading back to Middleton, cyclists can enjoy the groomed landscape along the very popular Hwy 12 bike path. 

Our 50-mile route provides some breath-taking scenery, along with the challenges provided by Wisconsin’s glacial topography.  Enjoy the rugged hills just west of Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail as you cycle through the quaint towns of Cross Plains, Vermont and Springfield.

Each route provides well stocked rest stops, supported by volunteers, SAG vehicles, and much more! 

Join this unique event which will empower participants to take action and demonstrate their support in the fight to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.  Together we will reach our $45,000 goal!

Registration Fees:
$15:  January 1st-March 31th
$25:  April 1st-June 30th
$35:  July 1st-September 8th

Fundraising minimum: $150

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

How to Get Your Wheels In Motion:

 Join the CF Cycle for Life event with a team of co-workers, friends or family members and make a difference.

Registration fees do not count towards the fund-raising minimum and are non-refundable and non-transferable. Encourage a minimum of four colleagues, friends and adult family members to join you during this annual event.
If your minimum pledge requirement ($150) has not been met, you will have the option of providing a credit card or cash on event day.  You will have one month after the event to submit the remaining balance before your credit card is charged.

TIP - When registering, you will be asked to state your fundraising goal (which you can change later).  You may select any of the amounts from the pull down menu that are ABOVE the ride's minimum fundraising goal.  If the minimum fundraising goal is not an option in the pull down menu, you will need to select the shaded block that is immediately above the minimum amount - and then type in any other amount above the minimum.

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.
