Riders choose a goal distance of 10, 25, 40, 65 or 100 miles to complete on Ride Day, September 11 (these distances represent the traditional CTF Ride routes). Change your goal and your distance at any time and remember, you can tackle those miles out on the road or at home on your spin bike!
Fundraise with confidence knowing that 100% of the money you raise goes directly to Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center. All participants receive access to an online fundraising page complete with ready to use emails and social media posts to gather donations. As you fundraise you’ll have the opportunity to earn our 2021 Closer to Free Ride Rewards!
Riders can get ready to ride with our training tools and resources. Check out our community's favorite cycling routes, join a Peloton ride or our Strava group and take part in additional training activities!
Your Ride starts with a powerful Friday evening event broadcast on September 10th. Join us online to celebrate and connect with the entire community. Saturday, September 11th is Ride Day. You’ll ride your distance and take part in some great online activities and surprise elements we’ve got planned.
