Asheville Naked Bike Ride

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

Asheville is getting ready for the big Asheville Naked Bike Ride soon. It's part of the global World Naked Bike Ride and we've had one in 2004, 2005, 2006, and now in 2008.

From Asheville Freak Bikes: "It's in the planning stages and the 14th June is more like the official date this year so there's plenty of time to organize. I've also been told that the French Broad Food Coop is the usual meeting place, so if everyone can confirm this and decide on a definite date and time..."

In March and June 2008, in cities around the world, people will be riding bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body. The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture.

Don't think I would be brave enough.

Thanks for your input, simone!

It is a daunting proposition for most of us who don't regularly go around au naturale. Actually few of the women go naked. They usually wear a skimpy bra top and shorts. One or two of them may take off their tops for the last few blocks of the ride as they approach their destination at Asheville Pizza. And many of the men may wear just a thong with lots of body painting going on beforehand at the Food Co-op.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
