About the Event:


Join us for our 3rd annual CF Cycle for Life: "Wheels to Wine in Washington County." This signature event will be held Sunday, July 22nd against a picturesque backdrop of the breathtaking Cascade Mountains. The safe and well supported ride cuts through lesser known rural roads and will feature a special post-ride celebration complete with delectable cuisine, live music, exciting giveaways and wine tasting from award winning vintners.

The ride starts and finishes at the venerable Willamette Valley Vineyards Tualatin Estate just west of Banks, off of Highway 6. Riders will have the choice of attempting either a 35 mile route, or a more elevated and demanding 65 mile course. Regardless of which route you select, every participant is sure to experience the joy of joining in the fight against cystic fibrosis in one of the most unique and unforgettable settings imaginable.

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

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.
