About the Event:


 Hundreds of men and women will come together on October 13, 2012 at West Creek Parkway to get their wheels in motion to cure cystic fibrosis. Cycle at your own pace around one of Richmond's most popular cycle routes. Registration fee includes day of bike maintenance, 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 suggest 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.

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.
