llini Cycling is a bike riding club at the University of Illinois. Illini Cycling was originally founded in 1989 by Ray VonFouche and Nels Hackl under the name of “Illinois Bike Racing Club”. Since 1989, the club has undergone some rather dramatic growth, and now boasts a massive roster of team members, with riders from casual to competitive, in the different disciplines of mountain, road and track cycling.
A demand for mountain biking trails at Kickapoo State Park, near Danville, Illinois, along with a lack of state funding to build or maintain the trails, led to the club’s formation in 1993. The Park agreed to allow volunteers to build and maintain bicycle trails on over 1,000 acres of land in the northeast corner of the Park. The Kickapoo Mountain Bike Club (KMBC) was formed and has been hard at work ever since with the assistance and approval of the Park and the Illinois State Department of Natural Resources.
