Auburn, AL saturday morning 11/13?

Shot in the dark.. but anyone in the Auburn area want to ride Saturday morning before the Auburn/Georgia game? Going to take my bike with me and was planning to do 35-50 miles (2-3 hrs worth). Never ridden the area so wondered if anyone wanted to join. No set plans on a route

Got any extra tickets? I wanted to go to the game, but haven't started looking. A bike ride before the game sounds pretty cool.

No. mine have been accounted for and I'm already looking (kinda) for some friends. Funny.. last year we were 8-5 and tickets were in abundance.. This year not so much . If you get ticket or decide to ride let me know. BTW I'm not overly fast.. probably 15-16 mph on my own, maybe a little faster in Auburn b/c it's not as hilly as Atlanta

Let me look at what is going on this weekend. I might just make the drive and go on the ride with you, and drive home before the game.

Yeah, just did a quick CL search and tickets are pretty high. Riding in new areas always is fun.

Was thinking maybe something like this or just head west/sw and do something like this. I had mapped out another version of the 2nd route where you could stay on 81 towards tuskeegee and then left on 199 left on 29 and then left on county rd 53 which gets you back to wire rd and back into town. I'm open to options.

Was hoping to roll out pretty early since the game is at 2:30. We've got a big tailgate planned so I'll probably need an early start. With a 2-3 hr ride was hoping to head out at the latest 8am. Closer to 7 is better (CST btw). Sunrise is about 6am.

Well.. I'm kinda glad I was alone so I could cut it short. I froze to death. Mainly my hands. Learning experience that will be remedied but my hands were sore and achy until yesterday evening
