Anyone besides me like to ride at night?

I think this was stopped because of people screaming through campgrounds at 3am, etc. 

What would it take to get the rules changed to allow riding at night?  If not all night to say 11 or 12 O'clock?

It would prob. take a miracle for that,
 I would be happy if they just gave us back our places to ride in the Forest.
It's gettin worse & worse for us.

I don't think we will see night riding in our lifetime.

Sorry but good luck getting night riding back.  You're best bet if you want to night ride is save up and buy some property, or make friends w/ ppl that already have land.

All it takes is enough people putting enough pressure on the decision-makers.  If enough people contact them they will listen. 

The negotiations could include pointing out that we have given up xxx thousand miles of trails to the new trail system.

Almost all the reasons for stopping night riding such as people riding all over at night through campgrounds, etc. have been pretty much eliminated by staying on the numbered trails.  The markers already have reflective tape on them.  Why?  So they can be seen in the dark!

I think the issue is worth having them take a look at.  It would be an easy change to go from no riding an hour after sunset to no riding after midnight. 

Heck I don't want to ride after midnight at all but a 9pm to 11pm cruise along the trail is awesome.

So who thinks it's worth a shot?
