All rooms are non-smoking. The hotel has a swimming pool and laundry machines, but does not have a whirlpool available.

Unfortunately our previous supported hotel, the Hyatt Place, will be unavailable due to the NCAA tennis finals at the University of Illinois the same weekend as the event this year. We will plan on returning to the Hyatt Place as our supported hotel again in future years.

  • Click Here for more information about our supported hotels.

If you are staying at the supported hotel, you will bike over to the central rest stop location in the morning on Saturday and Sunday and bike back to the supported hotel on Saturday evening after the end of your ride.

Opening Meeting
Our plan is to have the main check in and opening meeting on Friday at 7:30 pm at the supported hotel. However, depending on participation levels we may need to conduct part or all of the main check and opening meeting at 8:00 am Saturday morning at the central rest stop location because the meeting space at our supported hotel is very limited may not be sufficient this year. We will let all participants know our plans for the main check and opening meeting on Saturday May 7th, 2022, the day after our regular registration closes.
