WNBR to promote human power THIS WEEKEND! (caution nudity)

I know there are a lot of Portlanders here. How many of you brave souls will be out this Saturday night?
This ride in Portland is usually the biggest in the world and its all for a good cause.
Word is that (even though some folks aren't totally naked) it is absolutely legal and the police even block off traffic for the ride. Could be the biggest naked ride in the world.
Guinness anyone?

Most people put a plastic bag, or a towel or something under their backside.

I am tempted to participate this year. I have always avoided it due to being a fattie but it seems like a good time is had by all and from the photos it's not only for the thin pretty folk.

LOL, this is par for the course in the PNW - it's where the hippies landed when rents in SF got too high.

I weigh 300+, and I've done it a couple of times. Take your own advice, and "Let's Ride!" (Who knows, I may be on the same MAX as you going downtown)

What about an LED g string?

I saw a guy in one of those at a fetish club in LA once.

So San Fransisco wnbr was last weekend and they had 120 people ride.
In Portland they are expecting 10,000 to 12,000!
Its a big night for the bars also with all the spectators.
I think that that many people on bikes is a good thing whether they are naked or not
Maybe I'll paint the Bike Forums logo on my backside for all to see.

um just kidding
