Urbana

What type of school has an "Illini" as its mascot? I am not even really sure what and Illini is, but there are a lot of them here in Urbana. Approx 35,000 to be exact. We flew in here last night and havent seen much yet, but I am about to venture out on my bicycle and explore the "beutiful corn and soy fields" I keep hearing so much about. And then maybe at lunch go by a house for $65,000. Crazy! Anyone who knows the sweet road loops around here, hit me back and I will send you my sweet mix tape in gratitude. The University looks good at least...

Champaign-Urbana was so boring that I gave up riding for the 4 years I was there. Good luck.

The school is nice though.

this isn't bad...riding from city center is tough because there is a bunch of long straight roads before you get to anything decent. if you could drive west towards the river and the parks it is a little better, or out and around the Clinton Lake area... http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=2646597

It sure isn't California

Think about all the genetically modified corn and soybeans, specially designed to be 'round-up ready'. Think about all that pesticide being sprayed heavily all over those fields. Think about the residue of that pesticide blowing through the dust along the roadsides, and leaching into the drinking water. Think about your delicate DNA strands replicating with that toxin bathing them. Yikes!

Awesome like the birds that no longer sing in Silent Spring? Dicey, mate. Remember, both Oregon and Organic start with 'O'. Outstanding!
