    Nude cycling - any experience/problems?

    Thinking of taking my mountain bike to Cherokee Lodge in TN soon. Lots of nice dirt roads to tool around on. Normally at such places I wear a hat and sandals. I'd go with hard shoes for loafing along dirt roads with no traffic, but was wondering about the no shorts on a saddle thing. Anyone try this? I can't really give a quick whirl along the street without shorts!

    I am assuming (and hoping) this is a nudist camp that you are referring to. I would say get an extra wide and soft saddle. If you think your boys get bounced around now wait until there is nothing between them and the saddle.
    You've very successfully put 2 and 2 together and gotten a beaver. You're so far off the mark that you've left numbers altogether and entered addition with mammals.

    Carefull drafting that cute babe because you'll spoil your aerodynamics.
    There are 10 types of people in the world - the ones that can count in base 2, the ones that can't count in base 2, and the ones that didn't expect this to be in base 3.

    For nude riding you'll need a cloth or sheepskin cover
    over the seat if ya don't want to loose some hide when
    you ride!!!
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I never ride nude, mostly because I don't have a chainguard, and well, bad things would happen.

    I'd attach one of those el-cheapo saddles that come stock since they're usually softer and some rubber platform pedals.

    Don't cook anything that's fairly greasy naked, don't recommend it at all. At least an apron.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    What abunch of sorry ass responses from people that don't know nudism from second base. The puritan stricture against nudity in American culture is just downright sick. There is nothing to be ashamed of with regard to the human body. Many European cultures celebrate nudity during the warmer months.

    Just had to read it again. Must be my dislexia. Makes perfect sense.

    Nah. It is my lovely ability to type.

    It would probably have made more sense to say something like this:
    "separate nudity from sex'

    Little hypersensitive there? I thought there were some pretty good suggestions there. Some tongue-in-cheek, but good nonetheless.

    And other than the one eewww reply - which may have been directed at any of the previous posts - none that indicated any puritanical response to nudity.
