I just visited Jo(e)'s blog that witnessed a town celebrate the Solstice that way this year...by watching not participating. Now, my shocked mind went in a spin. I pretty much tolerate anything but not sure I would want to be a participant nor a viewer of this.
I admit. I looked. The art and creativity was amazing. The desire to duplicate this event did not enter my mind.
Then I thought about the bikes...Don't tell me that's comfortable for male or female!
I used to share my bike! I would never think twice about loaning it out for a ride. I'm sorry but I just can't look at bikes the same anymore. I certainly won't be borrowing a stranger's bike for sure.
Makes me hesitate at purchasing a second hand bike but how do we know for sure the new bikes are not tested for this very event?
I guess I'm old fashioned or prudish. I stopped and thought a while if there would be any reason I would EVER ride my bike naked. Only one situation called for it. If you ride your bike to a private swimming hole, go skinny dipping, and the owner shows with a shotgun full of rock salt...I had to admit I would ride my bike naked. Like the wind.
