First Training Ride!

And just like that, April is upon us! This month is always the most active for the Illini 4000, packed with training rides, events, and fundraising!

Speaking of training, the team just completed its first training ride, a 30 mile loop to Homer Lake. Leaving from Allen Hall, we battled headwinds for the first time on the way out. Every rider pushed through, finishing around noon on a beautiful, sunny Saturday. Good work team! Check out some pictures below!

This Saturday, April 6th, is the Alumni Ride! Alumni will meet the new riders in the morning and leave from Allen Hall around 10am. We’re very excited to see members from the past 6 years of rides!

This Saturday is also the Portraits Gallery! From 6-9pm, come to the U of I YCMA, where we will be exhibiting many Portraits- interviews with those affected by cancer- that we have collected along our cross country journeys.
