Leg 2

We'll plan our return from Athens on the spot based on how everyone is feeling. SR56 up to 71 was recommended. We may take a more direct route if people are tired or stick to state route if people are cold.

 

Chilly! But doable.

Here's a first cut at the Pumpkin Spice ride

Leg 1
I have us departing (9AM?) from a UDF in Milford. Ride out will take ~3:10.

I realize Milford might be a little out of the way for some but this is going to be a long ride and US50 would take us though Milford anyway, so hopefully that isn't too hard to accommodate for those starting farther south. We could move the start point farther south if people are strongly in favor.
We could trim another half hour or so but we'd have to cut out the Tar hollow section and stick to state route only. That potentially cuts away some really nice riding, or possibly rough roads but what's life without a little sense of adventure. We could also stop earlier for lunch if people are strongly in favor, but I do highly recommend Millstone.

Leg 2
North of Logan, cut through state forest to intersect 555, take 555 south, through Wayne Forest to Athens, stop at Donkey Coffee to warm up. Est ~2

I haven't planned the return trip yet but I have a feeling we'll be pretty tired at this point and want to take a pretty direct route back. I may just plan on running maps.

I was able to avoid some gravel roads with UrbanEngineer's help. There's still a little risk of bad road conditions in Tar Hollow but if we hit anything too bad we'll just turn around and head straight to Adelphi. Should be a beautiful place to ride.

We could abandon Leg 2 in favor of a shorter circle through the first section of state forest if this just looks like too much.

I'm a maybe. Wasn't sure about my schedule, but by the time my schedule cleared up (I fought to keep it clear) I got really sick. Even now the day before I'm iffy just because of health. I feel better than I did yesterday now. If I feel better again tomorrow, I'm in. Cleaning the chain and checking the tires just in case. Don't wait for me if I'm not there, I'll be early or I'm not going to make it.

I was looking forward to this ride, but unfortunately I have to bow out too.

I've got a 4th grader wrestling in his first MS tournament Saturday morning and want to be there to make sure everything goes ok for him; I also have an 8th grader wresting in the same tournament, but he should breeze through it. While I'm doing the wrestling thing, my wife is going to be driving all over the place to cheer on our oldest son at his KY HS XC State Championship and our oldest daughter at her HS cheer tournament.
