Portland's World Naked Bike Ride is back this summer

Portlandís World Naked Bike Ride is back this summer https://www.oregonlive.com/entertainment/2022/04/portlands-world-naked-bike-ride-is-back-this-summer.html

Maybe this will help my beleaguered home town get some of its quirky mojo back.

After sitting out the COVID summers, Portlandís nakedest bike ride is back and almost as naked as ever.

Almost because organizers are asking people to wear masks on their faces during the ride. Covering every other body part, however, is up to rider discretion.

This yearís World Naked Bike Ride will take place on the evening of July 30. So far, thatís the extent of the details. Would-be riders should keep an eye on pdxwnbr.org or follow @pdxwnbr on Twitter for more details as the event gets closer.

Every year, excluding the last two, bike riders gather in Portland and around the world and remove as many of their clothes as they want and ride through town to draw awareness to bicycle safety, fossil fuel dependency and really whatever cause they want.

1. Years ago I was in Covent Garden (London) when the 'naked bike' thing snaked past.

I kept shopping, but some (mostly guys) ran over to watch and were disappointed - the only naked people were very old men.

2. Ha!

A few years ago I was driving home from a concert with a friend we we encountered it quite by surprise. It formed a barrier that kept us trapped on the southeast side of the city, forcing us to drive a good five miles to get around it, all the while laughing hysterically. Itís a miracle we managed to avoid doing any vehicular damage due to distracted driving.
