Out of a love affair with cycling in all its forms, tandem bikes became the apple of Neutral Cycle’s eye in 2013. Long, delightful rides across the Champaign-Urbana countryside eventually inspired the creation of a single-speed coaster-brake tandem. Her name was Big Yellow. In March 2014, Big Yellow Ride was launched.


Big Yellow Ride is a simple way to discover and experience the rich culture of Champaign-Urbana. We are a tandem bicycle rental service in partnership with various local businesses. By exploring the uniqueness of our community, we can build an authentic and vibrant local identity.
