Fall Foliage Ride in Southern Ohio? Anyone?

Thought I might post again, and see if I could get a group together for a Sunday Morning / Afternoon foliage ride sometime(?) in October. I'd like to meet in Columbus at about 9:00 AM or so, and head out by 10 AM. I figure we could all meet for dinner afterwards...

No specific route in mind, but I've always been partial to the area around Athens OH and Nelsonville. To start, I was thinking a quick hop out to Pickerington and then onto more interesting roads...

If you have suggestions on a route or specific date, please let me know.

I'm not sure when there will be color, but I'm in anyway. I'm good for 12, 19 or 26th of October.

Somewhere someone mentioned a ride this Sunday the 21st. I might be able to move some things around for a short 2/3hr ride. Otherwise, A weekend in mid to later Oct could be the berries.

I'd be up for an Oct. ride.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.

Ride on Sunday, October 26th?

Looks like Sunday, October 26th is good for me, and the foliage should be nicely colorful by then. I'll go ahead and put together a post with directions to the starting point and specifics for the Events section of the site.

Thanks for your interest! Looking forward to riding with some fellow DL enthusiasts.

Not yet... got the tool for getting the front wheel off. Now it's just timing.
