Is the night ride at Boyette still on?

Just making sure as it is my first night ride.  6:30-9:30 right?  Thanks.

Yes, third Friday of the month.  Not sure who will be there.  I may actually be off of work in time to make it this time!  Which reminds me - I need to go plug in the lights...

Looks like I'm out for tonights Boyette adventure.  I'll be replacing the water pump and thermostat first thing in the morning.

balm/boyette closed from the north with a school bus accident and powerlines down. Any access would have to be from the other way. I dont see the situation changing for the next few hours as powerlines ARE crossing the road. The crash happened at the last sharp left hander coming from the north before the park

Now you tell me!  I was there at 6:35 and figured everyone would be gone by the time I went all the way around.  Did anyone go after all?

I didn't make it since the truck is having an overheating issue.  Hopefully others made it out and are enjoying it now. 

There was a scheduled burn there today too, so some of the trails will be scorched.

I was planning to go but chose a poor route. I-75 S was a mess so I tried to detour around it and got caught in a back up on Morris Bridge Rd. Gave up, turned around and went back up to Fletcher to ride Hole in the Fence. Not the same.
