Getting started with an active, happy, and healthy Chambana!

We care about jumpstarting active lifestyles in Champaign-Urbana, and here are a few ideas for engagement we have in mind!


We start with cycling, because that’s what Neutral Cycle does! We want to see more bikes on the road, and more people engaged with cycling culture regardless of their familiarity with bikes. Neutral is committed to sustaining cycling as transportation, recreation, and leisure for all.


Our community is dense, and besides having three ‘downtowns’ to traverse, walking between home, work, shopping, and play is easy in Chambana!


There are numerous running clubs nearby, and we want to help you find them. If you can’t find one, use the forum to start your own!


Our community has numerous organization that train for competition and charity runs, marathons, triathlons, and more. Connect with these organizations on Active Chambana, or form your own team.

Healthy Eating

Between our food cooperative, farmers markets, and natural food stores our community is rife with healthy eating options and information. Keep tabs on the Healthy Living Blog for articles about nutrition and wellness.


Healthy living is also about an engaging community. Between our calendar, forum, and healthy living blog we’re going to keep you apprised of every event we can find!
