I hope to go. My participation, though, is weather dependent.

Additionally, I will have to leave my home at about 3am to get there
(and find parking) at about 4am. I know that the ride starts at
5.30am, but I didn't want to get right then. I want some lead time.

Yeah, the parking is an issue for most.

So far, its a go for me. But my work schedule can change like what the Chicago Metreologists says.

I'll be ridding a Birdy folding bike.

I was in town that day, but no bike - but didn't it rain like crazy?

Not during the ride. But it was very dense fog so I ended up soaked anyway.

Yup, very foggy. But I had fun nonetheless.
Last year's ride was nicer.

I'm looking forward to next year's ride already.
