Riding on Lower Wacker without helmet/lights/reflectors: Isn't that suicidal?

I was on Lower Wacker Drive this morning and there was a cyclist (with cyclist cap and beard on a road bike) riding down Lower Wacker Dr (w/b > s/b side) without a helmet, lights or even reflectors. I couldn't tell for sure, but I think he even had earbuds in. I understand that some of the messengers believe they are hardcore, but isn't this behavior incredibly stupid?

I smell a Darwin Award re: Lower Wacker cyclist.....

So that GoPro doubles as a talisman, making you invincible?

I always ride down there but my shoes have reflectors on the back so im ok and i sport a gopro.

I was out for a ride yesterday evening and made my way onto Lower Wacker for the first time on a bike. What a crazy underworld. I felt like a comic book superhero.

I ride it regularly. Something along the lines of Batman perhaps? That is where they filmed some scenes for that movie.
