Cable management for lights

So I made me some lights ala cyccommute's plan and the pond scum plan.

They are great! I've got one mounted on my bars with a flood bulb, and then a spot bulb on my helmet mounted light. Plenty of light. My only problem is the wires from the battery to the light. How do people route their wires?

I don't want to cut the cable to my helmet mounted light because i don't want to stand up to pedal and get clothslined by my wire. I can feel my neck really hurting from holding up the 4 3 ft of wire that's hanging down from my light. Any idea on how to route the helmet wire so my neck is carrying it?

Also, are there any battery powered helmet spotlights that aren't ridiculously expensive?
