For the next 2 months, I'm to be at work at 3am. So I just picked up a Cygolite night rover and a cateye blinker for the back, and rode in this morning. It was great!
All my outbound rides are early - anywhere from 1:50 AM to 4:00 AM starting (usually 2:30 - 3:00). I ride 2-3 hours and then, part way coming back home, I stop and eat breakfast at a beach restaurant in Waikiki. Then I either go on home or spend time on the beach first. I love not having traffic issues, but it is also cooler.

no traffic no people just the night air, the only problem i have had is with skunks,
just dont piss them off, they are night critters
I like riding at night.. I use a HID headlight and the cateye LD-1000 and the performance flare for the rear plus I have the reflective tires from conti (TT).

It's wonderful! I've ridden from sundown to sunup just because it was so calm...but I don't care HOW bright my headlight is, I still can't see potholes during the new moon.

I love riding at night. Be careful riding at dawn if riding to the east or into the sun. The best of taillights become invisible to cagers because of the sun in there face.

Used to work a night shift in Manhattan. Riding home just before sunrise, weekend mornings, was the best. City was empty and silent, except for a few cops and some underdressed club kids who stayed out too late.

My evening commute usually leaves me in the dark, but it is nothing compared to mountain biking at night. That is just an awesome experience.
