And the verdict is...?
From the news reports they rode around Brittingham Park, got some complaints and 10 citations.
Saw a mother on the news saying how she's "livid" about it, that her son was exposed to a little nudity. Give me a break.

That's bad naked, right there.

Hopefully, folks made sure everything was clean before riding. Nobody wants to see skid marks (or cake) on your bike seat.

I didn't realize that in a lot of these rides participants can be partially clothed or cover up somewhere along the way.
You wussies! You should have to be FULLY NUDE from START TO FINISH!

World Naked Bike Ride participants say Madison cops were out of line
I don't doubt it one bit. It's a conspiracy.

I don't doubt it one bit. It's a conspiracy. What is with this town and nudity and/or sex anyway? It's like Reverend Pritchard is still behind the curtain somewhere pulling strings.

So, brave boy, why didn't you join them? Or are you only nifoc?

We watched the NBR roll past (twice? three times?) a few years back while sitting outside on the Square. It struck me as ridiculous and hilarious that so many riders wore helmets. Nothing else, just the helmet.

Also entertaining: watching parents with kids register what was going on. Some panicked, some smoothly redirected, some didn't care.

Naked riders need helmet safety just like other riders. It may look funny but it's sensible. Looks like just you and me talking today.

HPV? Isn't that an STD?
