ALL night riders are required to sign a waiver that will be good for one season. This is a basic requirement from LCPR.
After signing the waiver, on the following night rides the biker will be required to initial their check in. All riders are to be checked in by 6:30 pm. The gate will close at 5:30 every night except for Thursdays.. the gate will close at 6:30 on Thursday evenings for the night rides. Keep up with trail closures with FB and the county website. The county grants the club this privilege because of all of the hard work from the Mudcutter volunteers to maintain and open the bike trails every year. we encourage everyone to be a current Mudcutter member to support what we do !

A few riders arrive at 3:30 but most riders usually start showing up around 5:00 pm with the main group leaving at 6:30 pm sharp. We are usually at the park until about 8:30pm. LCPR requests that riders sign in and be out of the park by 8:30 pm .
Guidelines per LCPR:
Caloosahatchee Regional Park offers night rides on the mountain biking trails during Daylight Savings Time. This means that night rides will occur on designated nights from November through 1st week in March each year. Night rides begin at 6:30 pm and all riders must be finished and back in the parking lot by 8:30 pm. All night riders will leave from the north side entrance to the park located at 18251 N. River Rd. Alva, FL 33920. These rides are for experienced riders familiar with the trials. Riders are required to wear proper safety gear and lights. Night riders must sign in with staff at the North entrance and sign a “hold harmless” waiver. Riders are required to sign back in with staff on their return. Staff reserves the right to deny a rider who does not have proper night gear or who has abused the return procedures and times. Parking fees apply.
