Illini 4000 is…

…where you meet your best friends
…where you learn what the word “team” truly means
…where you are humbled and inspired
…where talking to strangers isn’t necessarily a bad thing
…where those strangers become friends
…where “home” becomes the place where your bike and your teammates are
…where you see parts of the U.S. no other tourists actually see
…where “the country” becomes the people who inhabit it and give it character
…where you learn to see the country through its people’s eyes
…where you discover those people makeup an incredibly diverse group
…where every hill is just a bump in the road

…where everyday is a new day
