As Bare As You Dare

If you think you’re going to an orgy, you’re going to be very disappointed. Instead, expect good, goofy fun! 

That’s how Portland’s version of the World Naked Bike Ride is described on their website. The organizers’ mantra is “Good, Safe, Fun,” a major reason no alcohol is permitted and riders are warned of the dangers of drunk riding.

Guess who was in Portland for this year’s ride? So how could Lisa and I pass up the opportunity to witness this unique event? It would like being in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and not watching the parades.

We saw some pretty unique bikes at the event:

As well as some unusual bike helmets:

And a variety of seat covers for the comfort of the riders:

But most of all, we saw people of all ages having fun:

And yes, thousands of them were naked:

But have no fear, the slogan “As Bare as You Dare” applied to all…and Lisa and I didn’t dare to bare.

    1. It was very funny but since John wasn’t there, it can’t be included in the 15 in 15. Maybe again next year? (I don’t think so.)
