Alafia night rides
« on: November 18, 2009, 08:26:07 AM »
I'm ((((THINKING)))) about starting the night rides at Alafia again. IF I do what days would you like them to be. The only days I can do it would be Tuesday or Saturday nights and they would probably be every other week and would not start until after the park closes because everyone needs to sign a release.

I like the thought.  I'd be interested. (Have to get a light first though).  Either of those nights would work for me, although Sat. would be a little more convenient.

Sounds interesting - I also would have to get a light.

I'm interested.  Saturdays would be better, but could do Tuesdays if start time is around 6:30-7:00.

I'm interested as well. I'd rather do it during the week as I try to get my hard ride in on Sunday mornings.

Y'all suck. Saturday, unless the Tuesday option would start after 7. Would love an alternative to Flatwoods for night rides.

Any opportunity to ride at night is a good one, keep in mind that Tuesday night has rides at Flatwoods and Santos (from the shop 6:30).  Having a second week night option would be great if the scheduld opens up in the future.  Thanks for looking into access to a new site reguardless of the day.

This is all paving the way for the 12 hours of Alafia, right?

And yes, I realize Alafia is a State Park. So is Oleta.

Are there night ride restrictions for Croom? Because hauling ass down one of those long downhills sounds fun. I have a mental image of a high speed late night collision with wildlife though.

That is always possible at night. My count so far is 1 alligator, 4 armadillo's, 3 racoons, and 2 cats. Squirrels don't count. :D
