Taking spandex out of the equation.

Just wanted to clue everyone in to an interesting inspiration for riding this weekend: the World Naked Bike Ride. An annual tradition since 2004, WNBR was originally focused on "protesting against oil dependency and celebrating the power and individuality of the human body." The message has since been simplified to focus on cycling advocacy - which, I believe, puts us in the same boat as them, or them in the same boat as us. How's it feel to be in a boat with this guy?


Individually organized events will happen around the world (including SF, NY, Seattle and Portland), and it's pretty damn amazing what these folks have come up with - and the press coverage they've garnered. Inspiring? Definitely. Entertaining? For sure. Nuts? Lots.
