Wednesday Ride on Tuesday; I Can't ride Wednesday and a New Meetup Location!

We start at Pyramid Packaging in Glenview, gather at 5:15pm, and ride at 5:30pm. I anticipate a pace (average speed) of about 12-14mph and a distance of about 15-20 miles, but we can change this, or the direction, if needed.
Trail Type / Bike Type
We ride on the streets and the paved North Shore Trail and any bike will do.
Transportation/Parking
This is a parking lot that we can use so we do not have to worry about the honorable Forest Preserve Police.
Carpool
Feel free to arrange carpools amongst yourselves.
What You Should Bring
Bike (in good working order), Helmet, Extra Inner Tube, Portable Air Pump (or CO2 cartridges), Tire Levers, Sunscreen, Lock (if stopping for dinner), Money (if stopping for dinner), Cell phone (recommended), Photo ID (recommended), Insurance Card (recommended), Munchies / Power Bars / Trail Mix (recommended for any long ride without a break for food.) It is a GOOD IDEA to get front and rear lights, as we probably will be out during twilight or later.
Waiver / Helmet Rule
Each rider will have to sign a waiver for each ride (I will supply the waivers). All riders must wear a helmet for the duration of the ride.
Weather
I plan to do this ride unless it rains heavily. I like the Paul Simon song but do not plan to keep Slip Sliding Away. ;)

    I'm a definite maybe ... I rode a metric century yesterday and I usually don't feel the full effects until 2 days after.

    Also, the map puts you in the wrong spot.... It's the first building on the corner of Chestnut and Johns....

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
