I called Alafia today and they said the gate will be shut at 5:30 instead of 6:00  >:(

Confirmed.  I rode there late this afternoon and they were waiting in the parking area at 5:25 doing laps in their white trucks.

They always close at sunset.

Totally brain farted on the earlier sunset. I agree half breed, they seem to mean business out there when you are riding back to the truck near the buzzer time. I've gotten my share of annoyed looks and or reminders. Fact is I'd be annoyed as well if I had to round people up so I could go home for the day. I just need to mount the bike computer I bought over a year ago so that I have the time right there on the bars :-[

 Great answer Cat. They can't leave the park until everyone has left. They have families they would like to see or dinner getting cold because they have to wait for us to get back from a ride. I know how I or We would feel if we wanted to get home for something important and had wait around. This a great time to ride Croom, you can ride till midnight or later if you want. You can even ride at Carter Road till 9pm I think.
