Thanks for the advice on the lights. I got back from riding about an hour ago, and realized I never should have started so late without lights. It wasn't dark yet when I finished, but if something had happened along the way--a flat or anything--it would have been. I was just thinking that lighting would be a wise investment.

Had to work late last night. Left the office around 9:30. My lighting system did a great job of lighting the road for me. Managed to do 9 miles in 32 minutes, including the 2 red lights I had to stop for. Not too bad for using the wally world mtb.
In case anyone else is interested in riding at night and lighting, I use a Cygolite Night Rider xtra (16 watt halogen dual light) a Cateye EL-410 in blinkie mode and for the back a planet bike super flash. In addition to the lights, I have a high viz yellow jacket I wear and my backpack has reflective material on it. Sometimes I will use panniers, and my panniers are also reflective.
