    I think Asterope's original plan is less likely to lead into strife though ...

    Yep, I ride home at or after midnight and that's pretty much it.

    Hardly any cars, people aren't in such a hurry and since there are no
    cars coming the other way people who are overtaking are able to do so
    while giving more room.

    I think late at night is probably safer than early evening, when its
    not quite perfectly dark and my lights and reflectors don't stand out
    as much (or when the sun is low in the sky, which is worst of all) and
    there are lots more people commuting home.

    I've met a few late night bogans, but never had anything more than
    abuse thrown at me.
