I have heard from several people and start times range from 6:00 to 8:00 although one thing is common, the pace will be appropriate to the temperature. It's a long drive for me so I'm striving for being on the bike at 7:30 and I think Flyin T is doing the same..
So, this Saturday is the annual Rocky Ride out of Circleville High School. The official start time is 8:00am but Mitch and Peggy, the hosts, will be there at 6:00am with maps for those who want to start sooner. Variety of distances, including 100 miles.
