The Lupus WolfRide GranFondo is a long-distance 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. With a start/finish in Columbia, IL, the routes are equivalent to the half iron and full iron man distances (56 & 112 miles), and an added Family Fun Course – The Wolf Pup (21 miles) and Lilian's Loop (5.5 miles).

Designed for recreational cyclists and racers alike, the Lupus WolfRide has been named the "best organized charity cycling event in the region".

Join us in Columbia to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for the estimated 1.5 million Americans who suffer from its brutal impact. 

Together we can tame the wolf!
