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
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.
Here for information about staying at
the Hammond hotel.

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

service from Chicago after the end of the tour.
