Bike lights as Halloween props?

OK, this has nothing to do with commuting, but I thought I’ll post it anyway. Last Sunday, my family and I participated in an event sponsored by our church called “Trunk or Treat”. We basically decorated our vehicles with a Halloween Theme.

As darkness descended, I used my cycling lights for special effects and as spotlights:

My cygolite rover as a spotlight to light up the big ass spider

The NiteRider Dual MiNewts in flashing mode, great strobe lights!

My Cateye front blinky light as a spotlight

I didn’t think of it this year, but next year I will build or modify a bike for this Halloween event, should be fun!

Bike humor

A tandem rider is stopped by a police car. “What’ve I done, officer?” asks the rider.
“Perhaps you didn’t notice sir, but your wife fell off your bike half a mile back . . .”
“Oh, thank God for that,” says the rider – “I thought I’d gone deaf!”


I was speeding down a narrow, twisting, mountain road. The woman was driving very slowly uphill, honking her horn and shouting at me: “PIG! PIG!!”. I flipped her the finger and shouted back “BITCH! COW!!”. Then I collided with the pig!
