We are gathering at Buckingham Fountain; about a dozen of us so far.
Comment by Ed yesterday

We will not be at the start of the ride, but will arrive later in Whiting and for riding back.

Comment by Jared on Saturday

This might be our last year going past the State Line Power Plant, as it is currently under demolition.

Comment by John on Saturday

Yes - we will stop towards the far end of the point by the drinking fountain.  It will be brief, but enough time to meet up while people refill water bottles and play Spot the Refinery.

Comment by Jared on Saturday

I believe so.  More details should be on facebook.  See link in the comments below...

Comment by Carla Henault on Friday

Will there be a stop at Promontory Point to pick up south siders like last year? 

Comment by John on Friday

Tomorrow is it!  Please give yourself enough time to get to the fountain, as Lollapalooza fences are going up.  We will leave at 10am, and updates will be posted.

Tonight's homework:  chewing and swallowing.
