Hey! We have a regional board now! Great idea, Joe (and other mods).
For those in the Northern Chicago 'burbs, or the Milwaukee area, several Bike Forums folks are meeting up for the Cream City Cycle Century out of Waterford on Sunday 8/27.
See details in this existing thread: Any BFNIC members doing the Cream City Cycle Century
If you're interested, reply back in either the thread above or this thread right here.
