Headline of the Day: "Naked Cyclists Butt Heads with Police"

Maybe it should be an Olympic event...

After reading the story, seems like the headline could also read "Naked Cyclists Buttheads with Police".

Too bad Fixed Travis wasn't there to join them.

My daughter just left this morning to travel back to Vancouver.

I'm OK with nudity, if that's your thing. I'm OK with riding a bike nude, if you're an adult and aware of the consequences of your actions, and willing to risk it. I'm NOT OK with an adult riding nude with a small child, also nude,in public. C'mon let's use some common sense here....

How do those nude cyclist prevent chaffing? I can see Proofride for the B-17's but can't/don't want to imagine what to do about seats with cutouts.

That cutout needs to be there in case a monkey flies out of your butt.

Isnt this another good argument for putting the padding on the seat instead of in your shorts?
