About the Event:
Join the Minnesota Chapter for our first annual Cycle for Life bike tour! Our inaugural ride will happen on Saturday September 22, 2012. This route will not only challenge you physically, but it will take you through some of the most beautiful Minnesota countryside during the peak of Fall. You have a choice of two mileage options: a 62 mile route or a 32 mile route. Cycle at your own pace...this is not a race!
62 Mile Route: Map
32 Mile Route: Map
Your registration includes training rides, a commemorative long sleeved t-shirt, breakfast and lunch the day of the race along with a truly memorable experience!
Participants under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle For Life®
Whether you choose the 25-30 or the 65 mile route, you will enjoy well-marked and monitored routes. The Aptalis CF Cycle For Life® event provides superior SAG (Support and Gear), which are roaming vehicles on the route that can help you with any bike issues, supply you with food and/or water, or take you to the next rest stop or finish line. The routes have fully stocked rest stops, professional bike mechanics, experienced medical and traffic control teams, smiling volunteers, and wonderful food and drinks! The route itself will be well-marked with mile markers every ¼ of a mile to help keep cyclists safe.
Participants under the age of 18 are not permitted to participate in the Aptalis CF Cycle For Life®. Bike helmets are required to ride.

Registration fees are not tax deductible and do not count towards the fund-raising minimum and are non-refundable and non-transferable. Your Minimum Pledge Requirement is tax deductible and must be turned in on or before event date.
We require cyclists to raise a minimum of $200 to participate in the Cycle For Life® tour. With the help of volunteers like you, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is able to fund vital research and therapies for those affected by cystic fibrosis.
If your minimum pledge requirement has not been met by September 22, 2012, you will have the option of providing either 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.
We Will Support You:
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.
