Great Riding In Alabama

Has anyone been riding in southwest Alabama? The trees are about to start to turn. All I need to do is change my oil and I will be ready for a big ride.

I'm in South Central Alabama but this is my favorite time of the year to ride the bike or ride around on the boat on the lakes.

I'm in East Central Alabama and I still prefer riding up 200 miles to the Cherohala at least. Elevation is important to me, my favorite riding area is the Pisgah. But, for leaf peeping only, the ride up Paint Valley will be pretty next week. Just wish the roads were like 30 through eastern TN!

I've done the coastal areas, ridden most of Alabama etc. Actually, the leaves will probably be very good in NE Alabama this year. Plenty rain, moderate temps right now. So far the colors are bright. I'll be riding Cheaha often as the leaves fall...

I just did the TN/NC Cherohala and it was pretty good at 4500, the leaves are changing fast. Already getting brown above 5,000. Looks like the best time to ride will be next week above 4K...

I love Cheaha , was there 2 weeks ago. A little gem kinda hidden in that corner of the world. Just spent last weekend in North Ga. , NC , and TN. Leaf peepers were out in full force , but the roads were great.
