Community Used Bike Sale - Kickapoo Rail-Trail Edition will benefit the trail and all proceeds go to CCFPD for development of the trail. They have purchased the land but now we need to raise the funds to build the trail from Urbana ~ Danville. You can help the effort by donating your used bike to the sale.
