Sorry, registrations are currently closed.

July 30, 31 & August 1, 2022

For 25 years, the CowaLUNGa Charity Bike Tour has benefited Respiratory Health Association’s community lung health work. People with asthma, COPD, lung cancer and other chronic lung diseases continue to face daily challenges, especially during COVID-19. The need for RHA’s work is greater than ever, and our programs and events depend on the support of our community. Your efforts help us continue empowering patients and caregivers – and protecting the most vulnerable people among us.

We invite you to escape the noise of the city (or your house) for a 3-Day weekend pedaling over rolling hills through northern Illinois into southern Wisconsin. Along the way, you’ll experience an unparalleled level of camaraderie and support from other cyclists and Respiratory Health Association, while helping RHA achieve its vision of healthy lungs and clean air for all.

To protect the health and safety of all riders, we will follow Illinois and Wisconsin public health guidelines. Please note, advance proof of COVID-19 vaccination or proof of negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event will be required for riders. Limited single rooms are available upon request for an additional fee. We will also offer a virtual option if you want to join the fun from wherever you are!

Ride Options 
18 or 65 miles in one day, 130 miles in two days or 190 miles over three days. All routes are one-way and include:

  • Full SAG and medical support
