We are gathering at Buckingham Fountain; about a dozen of us so far.

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

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

Comment by John on July 25, 2014 at 10:08pm

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.

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