    $10 says that no actually attractive person will participate, but thousands of men will show up to watch anyway. I hope no one even considers posting links to photos of such an event, much less pictures themselves.

    Actually there is a photo page on the link I posted. I've seen these folks riding in the past few years. Mostly skinny faux-hipster types - some cute, some scary...very scary.

    Weather tomorrow in Chicago
    A high of 58 degrees with 10 to 15 mph winds and thunderstorms.

    Sounds like a perfect day to ride around naked on a bike.

    The shrinkage factor should be highly prevalent.

    As if faux people and hipsters weren't annoying in themselves, this attracts faux-hipsters?

    Agreed. Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood back-in-the-day was chock full of great artists, bands, freaks of all sort. I wouldn't have ever referred to them as "hipsters," though. In fact, I don't think I could even refer to anyone post Beat generation as a hipster. The bulk of Wicker Parkers nowadays are trust fund trendy-chic-faux-hipster wannabes. Alas. I'm not planning to go on the ride but it's always fun to observe.

    That's the high - it's supposed to be 48 degrees that night. Frosty bits indeed.

    And judging from the photos on the original link it was chilly last time too :p

    Guys with small endowmets and girls with fat rear-ends should not be riding around naked.

    And I hope they hose-down and then steralize those bikes once completed :D

    And under no circumstance should rental bikes be used :eek:

    And lastly, naked bike riding is SOOO WRONG...

    Burn all the bike seats! Now!

    Should be interesting. If I'm bored enough, maybe I'll go and watch. It's going to be chilly and raining tomorrow here...

    I totally agree with you. The only people you see getting off at Damen Blue Line are 30 year old scenesters who are trying to remain hip. I may look like them, but I don't want to live with them and associate with them. That's why I still live in the 'burbs.

    Before seeing the pictures, I was leaning that way.

    After seeing the pictures, I completely agree! :eek:

    They're wearing helmets so technically they're not naked, just overexposed.

    I seats will be collected into one big pile and ceremoniously burned at the end of the event.

    hmm, there was a naked bike ride in London today and they had the weather for it. Apparently there was a turn out of around 800 people


    And there are pictures here (and no, they're not all old wrinklies although an 84 year old granny was involved!) - fascinating image at the top! (NSFW)

    I want a small amount of money for inventing this.


    They call this an organized event. I call it Saturday.

    I rode naked once and it really hurt. Now I wear underwear when I ride. :)

    Neil's college roommates ran around the block in their underwear once. They happened to run past a bunch of people in their apartment complex in the process. He will only fess up to making snow angels in his tighty-whities. :D
