While Jodie, some friends and I dined on vegetarian Chinese food at The Lotus Garden on Charnelton, we saw a bunch of naked people go by on bikes. Now we know why:
A mass Naked Bike Ride through the streets of Eugene — an event intended as a whimsical demonstration against oil dependency and a celebration of the human body — briefly turned into a fracas Saturday when police tried to stop the parade and arrest some of the participants
Luckily, nothing turned nasty. The police decided to leave the situation alone, and the nakedness continued. I love Eugene.
Saturday’s ride was a nod to the naked bike rides that go on in 70 cities nowadays, from Auckland, New Zealand, to Seattle, Washington. Want to ride naked? Check out World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) – Naked Bicycle People Power!
