World Naked Bike Ride Day June 12, 2004 (Coming to a city near you)
newfrontier.com ^ | 4/18/04 | rebelbase

Posted on 04/18/2004 5:43:59 AM PDT by Rebelbase

This hasn't hit the mainstream press yet and you will be reading about it from bonafide, FR approved press sources soon, but for now all the "press" that is covering it is Indymedia, which is banned from FR, so I had to use the offical event website, which contains some mild nude photos.

The local lib-wacko message boards are being spammed with links to this event. If you are shy, please don't click on the link.

So far the US cities listed as having an offical event are as follows: Chicago, New York City, Seattle, Portland, Asheville, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco.

In Asheville, NC the police are having discussions as to if they will turn the other cheek (Sorry, had to say it) or have arrests.

Hell in a handbasket.

It's all about gravitas -- why socialist weenies have it, and President Bush doesn't. Sorry, maybe Dan Rather could explain that better.

From the website:

"...Our message to the world is one of simplification, human harmony and love. For a future to exist for tomorrow's generations, we have to stop wasting the life blood energy of the Earth, stop fighting and killing in the name of consumerist wealth accumulation and learn to love and respect all life..."

On June 12th, universal citizens of cities all over the world are participating in a WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE to protest oil dependency, to liberate the streets from wingless caravans of guzzling self-hate mongers, and to inject the hearts of our neighborhoods with the reality of our beautiful bodies which have developed over millions of years into their current perfect beingness. Join hundreds of naked compatriots in a free, non- sexual, fun bike ride.

Ha Ha Ha! Is this going to be like the Circus where they have people following with shovels and mops to clean up after the animals?

People need to realize that the typical naked American body inspires anything but world peace -- maybe consumerism in the way of ephedra or tanning beds, but certainly not world peace.

Ya see, George, there's 'good' naked, and then there's 'baaaad' naked....

On June 12th, 2004, the people of this planet are organizing the world's largest naked event since the dawn of the textile industry. On June 12 cyclists in cities around the world will be riding bicycles naked through their town! Cities already signed on include Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, CanadaLondon, England; Apeldoorn, Netherlands; Portugal; Pforzheim, Germany; Christchurch, New Zealand; Belgie, Belgium; Asheville, NC; Austin, TX; Burlington, VT; Chicago, IL; Los Angeles, CA; Portland, OR;  San Francisco, CA;  Seattle, WA; and many more locations world-wide are inquiring daily...

The World Naked Bike Ride is being organized democratically through e-mail discussion lists distributed around the world, and local networking through coffee houses, health food shops, bike shops, and the world's counter culture. 

Our message to the world is one of simplification, human harmony and love. For a future to  exist for tomorrow's generations, we have to stop wasting the life blood energy of the Earth, stop fighting and killing in the name of consumerist wealth accumulation and learn to love and respect all life. 

Arrest every one of them for being naked and stupid

Guess I should do the world a favor and give their seats the Ben-Gay treatment.

It'll be the FASTEST bike ride in history!

"Loved that poster! Hung in my room at home, my barracks, and my college dorm, then a skinny girl friend ripped it up in a snit, dammit!

I still have it folded up in the album sleeve. That's right, I said album. I love the clarity and portability of CD's, but, darn it, I miss album covers! There was some great artwork and such back then, and you didn't need a microscope to see it.

Y'all need to get one of these recumbent bikes. Ride all day, no butt pain, no wrist pain. Like sitting in an Easy Boy recliner and riding down the street. Super comfortable.

More info^ on 'bent bikes, or, as we like to say, 'getting bent' :)

It's rather difficult to see this taking place in Asheville. Pretty town tho. A hidden jewel.

I liked your comment.

I might just go to this as a spectator. Will there be females?

I will agree with some of the above comments about bicycle seats. No can do. Motorcycle seats are bad enough -- you can get good ones, but they don't come as standard equipment.

This has been in Seattle FOR YEARS!!!
My husband(when not in uniform) works at a company that sells industrial equipment..you know how liberal THEIR customers are :-)
Anyway, this "parade" rolls on by EVERY YEAR...and the customers just stand in the parking lot and stare...
It is hillarious~

The fact that SO MANY people bring their kids to this event is too weird..

In the photos there are females involved. Are they exhibitionists? Or more like "flashers"? True believers? I have a point in asking what y'all think.

For starters, those who Freep the event need to take cameras. Find the hot chicks (surely there will be some?) or the middle-aged attractive chicks. Also those with wedding rings. Take a few hundred pix from every angle, then go home and upload them to every nude-female-related YAHOO group, to every related adult newsgroup. Now some of the women will be happy, the ones who are exhibitionists, that is. But I am guessing that others---not to mention some of their husbands or boyfriends---will be unhappy to know that for all-time their naked pix will be in rotation on various "alt" newsgroups, chat groups, not to mention CD's on eBay featuring "20,000 Nude Real Wives" and stuff like that.

Someone should set up food stalls. High fiber muffins for breakfast, beans and chili for lunch, and lots of beverages along the way. Then tip over the port-a-potties.

It seems that the more willing someone is to expose themselves in public the uglier they are. Sort of an inverse correlation.

I just bought a fancy new digital camera. This could be the reason for its existance.

Find the hot chicks (surely there will be some?)

The place to go will be the pits (so to speak). I used to photograph motorcycle races, and I think this will be much the same.

I'm going. The jury is in on this one.
