this ride can be done safely at night. the course needs to be marked in places where traffic is a problem. the place where he was hit is a prime example, as is north parkway where we got narrowed down to two (traffic laden) lanes and no street lights were working (because of construction). they need to develop some hard rules about what makes a safe course and adhere to them without exception. For example, either we stop at lights or not. Different police officers had us doing different things and not all lights had cops. I have ridden this for two years and the same problems exist for both years. they really need a safety overall. we won't be riding again until they do.
