Riding bikes is fun. Riding bikes at night is a whole lot of fun. Better yet with a gang, crew, or posse, exploring the dark corners of the city, ending with a raised glass. Not hard to do it your way---here is my way.

Step 1: Tap the members

Any likely bunch will do. Try to mix it up gender-wise, unlike this bunch of computer scientists.
have you guys seen those bike after dark lights? they are awesome for night riding, they light up the entire ground when youre riding. pretty badass
woohoo~! biking in Pittsburgh at night is the sweetest thing. Check out Homewood Cemetary around sunset, lots of fireflies around during summer!
I love night biking. My posse recently split ways. We found the more lights the better. We had 3 guys each with 3 handlebar mounted headlights and then a couple headlamps. Also a few red taillights out the back. People had no idea what was coming at them on the sidewalk. We got so many cheers from passing cars. Very nerdy, very awesome.
Sorry, but riding on sidewalks is illegal. Bicycles are bound to the same rules of other motorvehicles. I ride my bike primarily at night, and have to say that I have fewer problems than in the day. Use high quality, high intensity lighting (remeber, it's your but on the line) and obey the rules. The pedestrians should get respect too. My rear light is visible from 1.5 miles out (according to the producer.) I checked once and found that it was pretty damned obvious at 1 mile. Assuming a closing speed of 45-50 mph (The car- your speed) that will give the driver well over 75 seconds to see you. Be friendly, wave and pick up screws at intersections and show them to drivers (sort of Forest Gump like) and you will win car friends.
You're cool, Leebry. You just look square. Underneath it all, I think you're really hep.
Well...I'm going to take that as a compliment. Be careful.

I live in the country in New York. People drive like retards here, all the time. Bad idea to do this here.
I love this, your pictures are kinda blurry though try setting your camera to night or somethin
methinks it was probobly more the "you earned it."step's fault that the images are fuzzy...

Hugo, I assume you're kidding that there aren't many women who want to ride bikes at night? I know many who already are and would love to be part of a night biking group. It's a super easy date to arrange.
