Anybody going to the big ride in Chicago Sunday?Jervis

There's a big invitational non-competitive ride in Chicago Sunday the 1st coming up and I was wondering if anybody was going and what I should expect. I've just recently gotten into the roadie thing after a few years in mountain riding and have never been to a mass ride like this before. I plan on doing the century. Do they have plentiful stops? Is it a pretty relaxed ride (10-15mph) or is it closer to 20mph for the whole ride. Just curious. Oh, and if anyone still wants to register late:

I'd be prepared for some serious speed. Those McHenry county cyclist are speed nuts. They ride as fast as they can away from Cook County.

This will be like night & day comparing this ride in the country to Chicago. Like any large ride, you leave when you want(within reason), ride at your own pace or hook up w/ a group that suites your pace, and just have a good time. Many of the roads are in the area my own club rides and you'll love the rural setting.
