I was so bummed not make this. Had the bike all clean, stuff all packed and the power went out and lost my alarm clock...awoke too late to get  to the start. I am glad you all had a great time. I will do double backups on the alarms next time. Looks like a super route.

Flossmoor is a straight shot west.

Essential Gear:

Comfortable bicycle
Spare tube or patch kit
Water
bungie cable or cable lock for the metra
Sun block (if you want)
Not much else as the weather is suppose to be sunny and 79

There's a secret route into Whiting which avoids Indianapolis Blvd.  Basically you head by the State Line Generating Plant cross over some tracks and ride through some parking lots and along the beach there in Whiting.

Thank you fine sir, we have one individual that has done this before.

If you're going to use that route, be forewarned, it involves some offroad shortcuts that will not be immediatley obvious unless you've done it before.
