Circle Cycle is pleased to present the 2nd annual bike-a-thon! Circle Cycle is a project on the portfolio of Illinois Enactus, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. At Circle Cycle, they are working to create an earn-a-bike program for youth in the C-U area with the goal of refurbishing abandoned bicycles from campus and empowering youth in Champaign-Urbana with an accessible mode of transportation.
Please come out and join a bike ride around the lovely CU community! The event will take place on
Saturday, April 24th from 12-3 PM. The distances will be limited to an 8 mile round trip, with 6 stops along the ride. The meeting point for this event is located at the Illini Union (on the University of Illinois campus), where the bikers will all congregate and start their rides. A detailed schedule of the event and course map can be found on the event website: here. Race organizers have worked hard to put together a timeline that is safe for the runners and area residents.
Admission to this event is $10. However, for students, they are excited to offer you a discounted price of $7! This event is ticketed, so a race organizer will be asking for a proof of purchase at the beginning of the event. Individuals will not be allowed to participate in the event without a ticket.
This event will follow COVID-19 regulations, so please bring a mask! Masks are required to be worn throughout the event but can be removed while biking. However, they are required to be put back on as soon as you arrive at any stop. Social distancing of at least 6 feet will be also enforced. Additionally, first aid kids will be readily available in case of any emergencies during the course of the event.
Sponsors for the 2021 bike-a-thon include Allergenius Baking Co., Industrial Donuts, and the I-hotel. Refreshments will be provided by our sponsors at the final stop of the bike ride.
