ABOUT THE RIDE

The Lupus WolfRide is a long-distance, open road cycling event designed to raise awareness of lupus and to raise funds to help improve the lives of those who suffer from its brutal impact. The WolfRide is a fundraising event to support the Lupus Foundation of America, Heartland Chapter and its mission. With every dollar you raise, you are helping the Foundation advance the science and medicine of lupus and help discover an arsenal of safe and effective treatments.

Ride historic Route 66 with three route options through beautiful Eureka, Pacific, Gray Summit, Villa Ridge and Washington, Missouri: 30-mile, 50-mile & 70-mile Route Options

The 70-mile route includes the popular and challenging Allenton Loop. The 30 and 50 mile courses will have the option to add this 7 mile loop to their ride.

This is a chip/timed and fully supported ride with Rest Stops and SAG support along the route. These stops are staffed by sponsors and volunteers. Designed for recreational cyclists and racers alike, the Lupus WolfRide has been named the "best organized charity cycling event in the region".
