World naked bike ride

Riding naked around the world

Keep your eyes peeled (or averted) as June is World Naked Bike Ride month. Actually, according to their website, this is for the Northern hemisphere. The folks down under go touring in the buff in March.

These rides are organized to protest oil dependency. I’m not exactly sure what one has to do with the other, but I’ll play along.

History

According to the one website, prior to 2004, these rides stemmed from two separate groups. Neither organization knew the other existed.

In ‘04, WNBR teamed up with Manifestación Ciclonudista to organize the first international nekkid bicycle ride. It’s caught on like a brush fire since then. Well, it’s spread around the world, and is represented in quite a few countries.

Guess where the most rides occur. I know, you thought maybe somewhere in Europe. I know, that’s what I guessed too. Nope, it’s the good ol’ U. S. of A.–and those Europeans call us repressed? Pah-lease.

It may not be my cup o’ tea, but maybe it’s yours. The World Naked Bike Ride just may be cruising through an area near you.

**I was going to post a video from Youtube. There were two issues. #1 This is a family friendly site, so no nakey people. #2 Most peeps that like to run around naked are not people that you want to see naked.**

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    Hahaha A truer statement couldn’t be made.

    I made the mistake of looking for a video, and saw way more than I wanted. Live and learn, I suppose. haha

    This is priceless–awesome (and funny!) post!
    Having spent time at some topless beaches in Europe, I can attest to #2. And, I laughed at all your morphed spellings of “being in the buff”.
    Thanks for the smiles this morning.
    :)
