The Knox County Bicycle Challenge (KCBC) is Saturday and begins in Gambier with people rolling out between 7:30-9:00am. . Ride the beautiful hills of Knox County with marked routes of 30, 60, 75, and 100 miles. Snack stops and sag support provided with a nominal sign-up fee at day of ride registration. Gambier Community Center, 115 Meadow Lane across from new Kenyon College athletic facility.
Then there is this interesting option to the south, called the Pawpaw Double Nickel ride. OK, only 55 miles but a great route. Ride start is in Albany, southwest of Athens and begins at the 2016 Pawpaw festival. Bikes begin rolling at 8:30 and there is no cost to riding. https://ridewithgps.com/trips/6473857
I suspect Gus will have a ride from New Albany Startbucks at 8:00am but I have not seen anything to confirm.
