What a day. Great weather. Large turnout. Got to meet a number of Chainlinkers. Got to admire Lisa's new Trucker. Enough said.

Mike and Tricolor, thanks for slowing down long enough to say hello! Saw Duppie twice at Rogers Park. Caught up with Serge and Matthies at Humboldt Park and then at the Festival as it was closing down.  So we stopped at a spot in the neighborhood on the way back and Serge made me drink a beer. I had been hoping for root beer.  Great day.  Thanks for all of the volunteers and especially for the volunteers who painted not just route markings but bright orange paint around the really nasty holes in the streets!

I think I have a Chainlink button somewhere . . .

@Mike nah, still in alloy territory though I do love its pothole-smoothing carbon-bladed fork! ;)

I'm planning on being there at 6:45, meeting up with a coworker as well. Hope to sera bunch of you and finally put some faces with names!

Julie decided not to have a table, so now I am in no rush!  Still planning to be at North and State between 6:45 and 7:00.  I can wait there for a little bit to see if any of you show up!

I'll be riding the 62mi route as well! Is there still a group starting at UIC? I'm considering riding down from Logan Square for the real start, then maybe ending at the Humboldt Park stop... We'll see if my butt can keep up - I'm breaking in the saddle on my new ride. If I spot some of you or vice versa, I'll be the one not on a LHT ;) I be riding a gray/blue cannondale synapse.

Well, we have to talk to Duppie.  Just maybe not for 20 minutes. Especially since it is only a water stop.  Duppie, how come you only got a water stop?  Oh, I know, it is really close to your house! :-)
