Major Previous Illini Weekend Getaway Specific Updates

  • The Champaign hotel and and transportation staging point before the start of the event has changed to the Hyatt Place. The new hotel is located in the heart of downtown Champaign and is only a 0.3 miles walk from the Amtrak train and Greyhound Bus station for our participants taking our transportation service from Chicago to Champaign before the start of the event. Click Here for more information.
  • We now allow trikes (any bicycle with three or more wheels) to participate in our events. However, all participants riding trikes must provide their own on road support for them at all times because we cannot guarantee that we will be able to easily or quickly transport them off the road in any support vehicle in case of mechanical breakdown. In addition, we still cannot accomodate any trikes on any of our transportation services. Click Here for more information.
  • The daily cost for parking in Chicago has increased to $20.00 per weekday. it is still $10.00 per weekend day.
