    Foldies can be naked too!

    Would really like to do the World Naked Bike Ride this weekend, but it's the day before I go back out on tour with 'Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel' and it's a 6 hour return train journey to London if I take a folder, or, a 4 hour return journey in the car if I take the Long-John (then there is parking & congestion charge)
    I'm in Brighton, Cardiff & London a few days before each ride, Grrrr! Very frustrating!
    One of these years, I'll be in the right place at the right time ( )*( ) ( @ )( @ )

    Hopefully Sammyboy will keep us up to date on the folders present.

    I have a notion I'll be at the Brighton UK one. I will be wearing a cycle helmet though. :-)

    Thank you. I fear with the current weather, my goosebumps will outweigh any other assets I may have upon display.

    I think if you have to ride a bike naked it should be a full size non-folding bike that you ride, people look funny enough as it is on clown bikes, and all those additional hinges, catches & general foldie bits must present a significantly higher risk of snagging soft tissue.

    I'm afraid Rule 217 of the HPFBS asserts decency, modesty and temperance at all times.

    Anyway, I might be run over by men on Bromptons...
