Wifey and I are going to a friend who lives on the harbor to watch the fireworks. She will drive there and I will bike. I'm going to get a lot of the usual comments about how dangerous it is to ride a bike at night, without a helmet, with all the drunks on the road. I have plenty of lights like Down Low Glow which casts a neon glow on the ground under my bike. Also monkeylectric on my front wheel a mini monkey light. Besides making me visible it also draws lots of comments form strangers. One said it looks like a space ship. Whatever. The lights are so bright and unusual that they grab your attention and that's the point of bike lights. Be noticed. I will be on a road for all of thee blocks. The rest of the ride is on the local MUP.
Crossing the Berkley Bridge. Only one way traffic for motor vehicles at a time. A few cross the bridge, the light changes to allow traffic from the other side to cross. Bikes and pedestrians have our own crossing.
