Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

SF peeps. did anyone catch 20ish nude cyclist riding down the streets?

On sunday, as I was getting a bite to eat on Lower Haight, about 20 to 25 cyclist, male and female young and old, was biking down the street nude. Some had writings on there body but couldnt tell what the the message was or if they were protesting against somethin. Im assuming it was just another ol good sunday to joyride naked, but not sure thou. anyone know, or joyrided along nude?

I saw them going up steiner towards haight. I think the writing on their body was protesting oil.

they seemed to be enjoying themselves. they tried to get me to join them, "throw your clothes in your bag, its fun," but I'm really not the public nudity type. heh.

Yes I did participate, but I was by myself. And I was walking. At midnight.

I like to be naked under a full moon....

^^reading this, it seems like I'm being sarcastic, but it's true! Outdoor nudity rocks!

wait... SF only had 20ish people? Burlington had 60ish. If the weather had been good we woulda had WAY more.

I'm eagerly awaiting photographic evidence of the insanity. I didn't bring a camera. No pockets.

First picture, person on the left, white helmet: Was the road that bumpy?

At least they are riding though, right? Looks super cold though.

I'd totally believe it. I did queerpunk's alleycat in bridgeport the day before, and the weather was the same. I can't imagine how uncomfortable it must have been naked. I wonder if anybody had a perforated seat? <shudders>

i saw them riding in front of my apartment and i actually took pictures.

shortly after, i got hit (got sandwiched between the idiot car and a parked car), my backpack was slammed against the parked car which had my camera in it, and now my camera doesn't turn on :'(

They should hold Naked Bike Ride day on the day of the Folsom Street Fair. The potential for hilarity is endless

There are actually at least 3 non-dudes in the first pic, but you'd be hard pressed to tell. I have the advantage of having been there so my memory can fill in a lot of what the picture doesn't show. It was somewhat dude-heavy event, but there were good number of girls there too. Not 50/50 sure, but both genders were represented.

the one in portland was waaaay bigger...it was fun as well that some of us were zipping between stalled traffic in sort of a semi-brunelle style while flaunting our nudity.

i think. i got so faded at this event and lost my top tube pad, one sock, my wallet, and almost lost my hat until i saw someone wearing it.
