I believe that when most of us think of a "Saturday ride" or "weekend ride", we're not thinking about riding after dark. Even if we're not going on a date, to a show or for the other things we normally associate with the middle of the weekend, we don't usually think of cycling.
Don't get me wrong: I have cycled on Saturday nights. However, it doesn't normally happen by design: I'm out after dark on Saturday because of an emergency or because my ride lasted longer for some other reason I didn't foresee.
And, I'll admit, in my youth I went for rides that ended in my (and, sometimes, my riding buddies') getting somewhat intoxicated. Believe it or not, I was once pulled over for CWI (Cycling While Intoxicated)! When I was at Rutgers, I'd gone to a party in Highland Park, on the other side of the Raritan River. The cops claimed I was weaving and wobbling as I crossed the bridge from Highland Park back into New Brunswick. I didn't get a fine, but somehow I managed to convince the cops that I'd get home intact. I don't remember what happened after that.
Anyway...If someone asked me whether there's a part of the week during which I ride least, Saturday night might be my answer.
Not so for this young man in Slovenia:

Perhaps the lyrics to a certain Elton John song were mis-translated into Slovenian!
