"Roadies" Dunkin' Donuts

Located at Lincoln and California. This is the favorite start location for the "roadies" in the club as it affords a quick escape from the traffic and frequent stops of the city. The north side Monday and Wednesday training rides start here as well as many long distance, fast-paced tours.

Queen's Landing

Queen's Landing is directly across Lake Shore Drive from Buckingham Fountain. The landing is a large concrete terrace in between the bike path and the walkway along the harbor. There are no signs, so just look for the big concrete terrace across from Buckingham Fountain.
