Many thanks to B-ham Bicycle Club and all those involved for a great ride. A note for the C&V forum crowd - it was really nice to see some other vintage bikes in use mixed in with all the new hotrods. (I was on my purple 1976 Austro-Daimler Ultima, if you saw it.)

Best wishes!

OOPS - Sorry. No offense intended. I grew up in Auburn. 1st grade... Auburn High... Auburn Univ.
Is Chewacla Park still a nice place to ride? We used to ride out Moore's Mill Rd (or was it Grant's Mill?) and then up to the top of Chewacla, throw the Frisbee and climb the rocks, then ride back. Other memorable rides included Wire Rd out to Tuskegee National Forest (across the Interstate) to play Ultimate Frisbee on the grass farm and the best was riding out Hwy 14 to Tallassee on the weekend to eat the lunch buffet at Hotel Tallasee. For a fun road course with great curves, good hills and minimal traffic, ride around Cary Drive off of N. College. It's about 2 miles around. That's where I grew up.

I'm not sure about Chewacla, I've never been there. I ride off road and heard that there was less than a mile of off road trail there so I've never checked it out. I should swing by there myself. I don't know how you guys ride wire road, I'm almost scared to drive it. I live down wire right past the lee/macon county line and ride TNF almost daily, weather permitting.

Auburn is a pretty nice town.

Auburn is a pretty nice town.
Bear in mind, that was about 25 years ago, so traffic was a little thinner...
The roads everywhere have gotten scarier over the years.

B'ham here, actually the 280 area. Just moved back here in August after separating from the Air Force. Lots of good riding so far, LiveStrong and Haunted 100 for organized rides here to date, and lots of group rides as well. Currently looking for a home that is convienent to good riding out the door, right now I have to load up to get anywhere to ride.
