There may be a chance of thundershowers.

Yeah, Fan Page is the only page.  Nice to put a blurb there like "Hey I plan to pitch the May route"

I created an FB event as ChicagoCriticalMass and added you as a host.

Also the link you had for the "FB Group" lead to the fan page.  Should I start it there?

Thanks for leaving the info Andrew, I will indeed!!!

YAY Ms. Red!

Do also use the FB group and maybe create an event posting there.

Sometimes route planners create a sub-thread under the CCM group here.  That's a good channel, where such topics get constructive feedback.

And consider joining the legacy listserv from the join form on the left side of the main site, and announce your plan to that list.

Finally, there's a top hints for route developers page on the main site.

Excited to be planning my first ride! Want to be leading the Mass back to warehouse/studio space located west of downtown.  Time to start planning!
