EQ # 1776. Fireworks in the peloton

I mean literally. I have a bunch leftover from the 4th and my spouse won't let me launch them from the front yard. Can I get a rulebook ruling and an ethics consensus on the merits of setting off a few during the slower parts of the Tuesday nighter?

You should mount them to your bike, creating a rocket bike.

Whatever you do, just don't put the powder from one of them in the bong mid-party. While you may think it's funny at the time, it will only be funnier when you think back on it, and we all know it's not nice to enjoy such surprises at other people's expense. Right?

Was that you? 2006 ASU road race, I'm at the back of the pack as we start up the main climb for the first (of five) times, and the guy next to me reaches into his jersey pocket, pulls out a pack of firecrackers and a lighter, lites them and throws them behind us.

Beat the heck out of me.

Shoot a few off the back of your saddle and I guarantee you won't have any wheelsuckers.
