No, I'm afraid of the wrong lube on a mucus membrane. Probably the citronella oil.

At first you think, "Gee, naked bike ride, sounds like the beginning of a penthouse letter!" Then you go there, and realize that the fat German tourists in banana hammocks that dot Miami beach are now on bikes, sans hammocks.

There is something to be said for those who are comfortable with their bodies.
Tis not for me for I am not that comfortable. Neither do I enjoy jail cells.

From the FAQ:
Is it legal to be naked in public?

It depends on the laws of the country that individual rides take place in. Public nudity is often more acceptable than you'd think, so long as the bahaviour of the naked people in question isn't lewd, aggressive or violent. For countries with stricter laws, the ride is "as bare as you dare" – full nudity is not mandatory!
Bike in Briefs day as an alternative?

One of those velcro straps around my ankle works for me.

Burlington (VT) is doing the ride again this year. Fact: It's legal to be nude. It's only illegal to disrobe in public. Strange law, no?
