Almost anything with electroluminescent wire is cool, but here's something straightforward I haven't seen yet.
Wrap loops of electroluminescent wire (around $2/ft) around the main horizontal bar of a bicycle. Attach many smaller segments of wire to the end of the bicycle, tied together with another
strand of wire.
Attach small transformer unit and battery to illumination. Switch on. Remember, fly responsibly!

||How about flying saucers or fireballs or whatever... the possibilities are endless!
||Ironically, the broomcycle only works well on a "Men's" bicycle.
||(In practice, all bicycles have the horizontal bar these days, don't they?)
||All good ones have horizontal top tubes, but they still make lots of rather-less-good ones with the sloping, skirt-friendly kind. I guess you could always stretch wires from the stem straight back even on a girly bike, though, if you were willing to risk being suddenly bisected when stopping sharply.
