Thanks for visiting. I hope to make the Urbana-Champaign Bike Ride site a collection of useful information to make bicycling in and around Urbana, Champaign and the surrounding areas easier, safer and more fun. It's still very much a work in progress so please send along any suggestions you might have. Have a great ride!

Join the UC Bike Ride Google Group
This group has been set up to help folks set up impromptu "pick-up" bike rides in the Urbana-Champaign area. If you feel like going for a ride and want some riding partners just post a message to the group. Be sure to include when you are leaving, where from, and how far you are planning to ride -- and maybe how fast you are hoping to go. Hopefully you'll find some other folks to ride with. Join through the Google Groups UC Bike Ride page.
