Cycle 4 Chiari - July 5-14th 2019



Cycle4Chiari is a fundraising and awareness event in support of the thousands of families affected by Chiari Malformation, a serious neurological condition which causes many symptoms and often requires brain surgery. Unlike traditional cycling events, Cycle4Chiari does not have set locations and routes. Rather, from July 5-14 2019 riders everywhere across the country can log their miles using the cycling app of their choice and then email their mileage to Conquer Chiari.

During the event, we will track the total mileage of all riders on this website. Let’s see how many miles we can Cycle4Chiari!!

Conquer Chiari is the largest non-profit organization focused on Chiari research and has funded more than $3.9 million in research projects. Proceeds from Cycle4Chiari will be used to support our research program and educational efforts.

How long will the event last?
You can start fundraising now! You can ride anytime from July 5-14, 2019.
