Annual Naked Bike Ride

Brighton has been celebrating the Worldwide Annual Naked Bike Ride since 2005.  In 2010 1,500 people participated. Last year and again this year, the weather was chilly with pouring rain, so only about 300 people participated.

We realized this morning that the bike ride was going down our street (though entering half a block down) and we decided to brave the elements and go see it. It was so much fun. there were very few onlookers, due to the weather, so when the riders saw us, they waved an hooted. We clapped and took pictures, so you can enjoy it, too.  It's an odd thing: one nakedness is so private, but when you see naked people on the beach or on bikes riding down the street, it's more about universal shared humanity than about privacy.

Here are some pictures:
