Yeah it was last weekend. I was out of town but would not have gone anyway. The tendency is for people who are willing to run around naked, to be people that you would not necessarily want to see naked, for one thing.

I would have considered going, but I wouldn't ride naked. I would be shirtless in my underwear. I didn't even hear about it until afterward anyway.

There is no law against being nude in public here in Vermont. But there is a law banning undressing in public. So you must go somewhere private to remove your garments before you ride or stroll about town. Or just leave your house in your birthday-suit.

You mean a person can expose themselves in front of Children In Vermont and it isn't an crime as long as they get naked before the kid sees them?

(he used to ride with Commissioner Rizzo!)

no way. our constitution & federal laws leave a lot to good judgment from the local officials rather than micromanage everything. i'm sure if there are no laws in vermont and someone pulled that with children around, he would be punished and forbidden to do so from local authorities.

speaking of which - i live in philly. john street (fmr mayor of philly) was an avid cyclist if i'm not mistaken. i heard he got up 3AM everday to ride his bike.

I see it says they are having another one next year. but i still wouldn't get naked. all i can think about what if some family has their kids out didn't know about the naked ride. I know I wouldn't ride naked but nothing says you cant make a video about cyclest gone wild. lol we can make the next smut video.

but then again i was down in new orleans and parents had their kids on burbon st and you walk down the street and they have photos up of the live sex shows that shows everything. I was thinking If i had kids they wouldn't be alowed on burbon st until they were 60. lol

If Louisville had one I'd do it... naked even. That is, as long as it had the blessing of the authorities. I won't risk getting arrested. If you don't want to see an overweight older guy naked on a bike, then don't look. ;P
