      Either Alafia's sidekick (3 miles west) or a destination on itself - you'll find more than enough to fill up a day of riding at Balm Boyette. A long warmup from the parking lot reveals everything from mellow greens to "do I have enough insurance?" double blacks. If you are an out-of-state rider, do yourself a favor and spend a day here. If you're a local... well you already know about Balm Boyette.
