You can be the first to take the Gulf Coast Bike Trek.
Cycle for Air will celebrate its 39th year in 2023, but this is the FIRST time it will take place in the amazing Florida Coast. Looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure or a way to increase your endurance, the Gulf Coast Bike Trek is for you. There will be three courses so matter what your level there is a place for you. Your distance options are a seasoned cyclist 62-mile loop, an adventure seeker’s 40-mile loop, and a family trek that tops out at 10 miles.
Our mission: to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. YOU are the key to that mission.
Whether you are an alumni cyclist or new to biking, there is a spot for you in the Gulf Coast Bike Trek. Our staff and volunteers will fully support you in your goals for fundraising, team building, and training as you prepare for ride day. On the day of the ride, we will have all the bases covered with medical support, mechanical support, multiple rest-stops with food & bathrooms, all covered by your registration fees. All cyclists start and end in the same spot so you will not have to worry about finding your friends and family. Everybody who rides will have a place at the finish line celebrating your fundraising towards lung health with food, music and more!
Register ahead of time to build and grow your team, participate in trek challenges, and work towards amazing fundraising incentives. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for any questions, and we can’t wait to see you in the on the coast!
