    I am happy to say I will be taking part in "World Naked Bike Ride" on June 10th at midnight. I have never done it before and it looks... fun... Apparently were riding down Burnside Bridge and through downtown, then back to a party.

    I think I shall be completely naked, though I don't understand if this is legal or not...

    "The More You Know" http://wiki.worldnakedbikeride.org/index.php?title=Portland

    Heh, "If there is one thing that Portlanders love more than their bikes ... it is their 1st amendment. Home to the most strip clubs per capita in the US, there is no wonder why we are home to the largest world naked bike ride in North America. Last years party and ride maxed out the generous location donated by Free Geek. We had about 170 riders in 2005."


    So True..

    Ah, the press is already going to be there, they ran a story today talking to people and what they think of it. One woman was like "Well I have kids, so I guess I can't bring my kids downtown there that day, its just so rude and stupid." The news has decided to stay netural on the issue (As they should) But all I can think, is why would your kids be downtown or on burnside at midnight anyway? Are they going out to drink or what?

    Well one news channel has slamed the whole thing down as evil (FOX, of all networks) the other channel kinda just went on with it all, just noting that it may cause a slight traffic delay and thats about it.

    Oh, my chainguard broke off a while back on my way to work.

    (Oh and her kids were aparently 10 and 12 and the mother looked like she was someone who lived in a shoe)

    Its not legal, ish, see it would fall under the indecent exposure laws, because we don't have a nudity law, this law is vauge and difficult to enforce, also cops really don't want to "take on" 200 naked people when there makeing aa quick run, the just let them do there thing, as long as they stick to the route and don't do anything else illigal there fine with it.
