BICYCLE ILLINOIS
Logistics of Continuing on the Tri-State Tour #2


Arriving in Hammond on Friday
You will need to ride over to the Hammond hotel from our rest stop set up at Wm. Powers Recreation Area (Wolf Lake). You should replenish yourself one last time at this rest stop since one will not be set up at the Hammond hotel. Directions and a map from Wm. Powers Recreation Area (Wolf Lake) to the Hammond hotel will be provided.

You will need to stay at the Hammond hotel since we will not have indoor and/or outdoor lodging available at a main lodging site facility such as a school or community center. We will deliver your baggage at the Hammond hotel on our way into Chicago and it will be waiting there for you when you arrive.

If you will be doing the century option that day, the tour ending location/rest stop 3 for Bicycle Illinois will be the same location as rest stop 1 for the Tri-State Tour #2 so you will already be familiar with the location.

Saturday Morning
On Saturday morning you will leave your baggage at the front desk and eat the continental style breakfast that begins at 6:00 am and is included with your reservation at the supported hotel.

You will then need to bike to the Tri-State Tour #2 starting location from the Hammond hotel. Directions and a map will be provided. You should leave enough time though to arrive there and load up on snacks and sports drinks before the group departure.

You will not need to check in at the Tri-State Tour #2 starting location because you will receive your Tri-State Tour #2 cue sheets and maps when you check in to Bicycle Illinois. You will also not need a new wristband, in fact you can show off your old worn out wristband from Bicycle Illinois to everyone just doing the Tri-State Tour #2 so they can gaze and awe at your accomplishment!

We will pick up your baggage directly from the Hammond hotel in the morning on our way to Kenosha. If you plan on staying at the Hammond hotel for two nights you should not have us pick your baggage at all.

After the End of the Tri-State Tour #2
You can either pick up your baggage at the end of the event in Kenosha or if you register for the return transportation service from Kenosha we will transport you, your bike, and your baggage from Kenosha to the Chicago hotel or at the event starting location in Hammond.

If you want your baggage delivered to the Chicago hotel, we will already stop there as part of our return transportation service from Kenosha. You will still need to register separately for the return transportation service from Kenosha however.

If you are taking our transportation service from Chicago on Sunday morning, the staging point will be directly at the Chicago hotel.
