Anyone ridden the Bragg/Saratoga ghost road?

Just curious...I really want to go out there. I don't know that I'd be brave enough to ride it at night, but maybe during the day it wouldn't be so bad.

Under daylight conditions it takes 30 minutes to safely drive to its junction with FM1293.

I just find the whole thing fascinating.

In the fall there is a ride that covers the road. Its with a meal and is a low keyed family type ride. I've never done this but should be fun. Try bicycle sports shop in Beaumont, they have a link or sponser the ride.

I'm from the Beaumont area, I'd love to ride the road at night! Could be a blast!
