Following on from my recent post about cyclists being a bit, well, weird my attention was caught this morning by mention on the radio about World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) Day.
Apart from the opportunity to link to a site that shows pictures of naked people on bikes, the organisers have a serious point to make. They argue:
We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy.
Fair play to them if they feel strongly about it I say.
I can’t help but agree, although I’ll spare the world the horror of a naked Muddymole on a bike!
