To Larry and all,

Very good point. I have been told this many times when riding in groups and I omitted this point accidentally. It is very courteous to burn your lamps steady when riding in a group unless you suck wheels at the back with me.

the requirement is indeed a "steady" rear light. It is my understanding

that this is for the comfort of following cyclist's. As you can imagine,

there is lots of group riding in PBP, and lots of very fatiqued riders. The

feeling is that the flashing rear light will be mesmerizing, and lead to

additional rider fatique and possible riding errors.
