Well, the wife and I went on an interesting but at time I think hazardous ride today. A local park has a large christmas light display. Tonight they closed the park to all vehicles except bicycles and had a so called family ride thru the christmas lights, The idea was great and I believe it could have been much better than it was. We got there at 6pm which was the starting time and it ran until 8pm. The route was 5 miles of rolling hills. The light displays were great the hazardous part was there was in the neighborhood of 300 bikes there and it was made of of people of all ages from 5 thru 70 , They did not requir lights on the bikes and several times on the ride there were both teens and adults just darting in and out of the traffic, more than half of them did not any lights or even reflectors on the bikes. We were lucky not to be involved in any of the multiple bike accidents we witnessed during this ride. Maybe its just my law enforcement background or in my opinion i feel they should have required some sort of lighting on the ride even if it was just rear blinkies. But hey mabe I am the one without common sence there.
