Tail lights on a Softride

I am thinking about riding a 24-hour later this summer and I'd like to use my Softride Powerwing 700 (see pic attached). I've got some taillights that I use for commuting and brevets on my regular diamond frame bike (they attach to the seat post or seat stays) but I don't know if I can attach them to the Softride. Has anyone here attached taillights to a Softride? If so, which model did you use and how did you attach it?

I don't ride one, but I've seen similar models on brevets and they had lights attached somehow... must have been on the seat post; of course brevet regulations say the light must be attached to the bike, not a seat bag, so it might be tricky.

How about strapping a light to the seat rails?
