The answer is obviously yes - I am sure 2 is the minimum number for a naked bike ride. :D

They could have been warming up for the World's Naked Bike Ride which for you guys is 3rd March 2013.

Dates vary depending on which State you live in, and for Perth, we keep our clothes on and currently don't have one announced.

Pictures required, or it didn't happen.

Apparently a friend of mine did :shock:

I've told him pics or it didn't happen :P

LOL! BLOODY GOOD TOUR!
Three hours of bare-butt cycling by the beach!
Possibly the biggest turn out of nudies on bikes shook up Bay Street, Graham Street, Kerferd Road, Beacon Cove, Station Pier, then a slow traffic stopping streak all the way to Luna Park, with a blockage of McDonalds thrown in for good measure. The group pic outside Luna Park entrance was the icing on the cake! Never seen anything like the enthusiasm shown by people, the high-fives, the toots, the penthouse pets running out to the balcony to cheer us on... and God knows how many mobile phones we are now taking pride of place on! Now I got some washing up to do: to get all this gold glitter and "war paint" off my back and legs. And anywhere else it's been slapped adhoc. 'Night world! :-)

Can they all get fined for indecent exposure?

I'm not trying to be a kill-joy or start an argument, but what's the point of this event? I don't recall hearing about any World Naked Walk, or World Naked Drive, so why this? As far as I can see, it will simply reinforce the prejudices that too many people have against cyclists, and provide further "proof" (not that some people really need any more) that cyclists are "abnormal".

Well look! This is actually the World Naked Bike Ride.

There is a very clearly stated rationale behind the nudity, as they say, "As bare as you dare".

We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians plus all the negative effects of oil, cars, war, consumerism and non-renewable energy.



P.S. This is a much better time of year to do such a thing, rather than in past years when it has been conducted in August!!

Interesting way of defending dignity - naked. :roll:

'I reject all of the evil things that humanity perpetrates by baring my bootox and wobbly bits!'

Yep, the world stands on the edge of revolutionary change. The tide cannot be held back by the clothed. :lol:
