This ride seems to be the gift that keeps on giving. The WNBR-LA is my most viewed blog post yet, by a wide margin. More photos are rolling in and some are too good not to share. There are all from the “LA World Naked Bike Ride” Facebook page where you will find the original photographer and many many more photos. Photos by Asleep Hernandez . (If you see stars covering anatomical parts, that is an artifact from Facebook.)
Not everyone was completely naked and that is how it should be. Nobody wants to force that choice on anyone else. We just want to be free to be us.
Women participated. In somewhat smaller numbers than the men but they were still there in abundance. It was nowhere near a stag party. Free the nipple was one of the many themes that day.
Hair is almost long enough for Lady Godiva
We included all races, genders, ethnicities, and nationalities. Gays and straights alike, but who cares? I didn’t ask or try to guess. They are all just people to me. Wonderful, caring, friendly people. There were demonstrators there from a wide range of topics. This man was demonstrating for bicycle awareness. Many drivers don’t seem to even notice bicycles exist. Perhaps some creative nudity will get you seen and not run over.
Lessee here, left to right, use more ass and less gas for transportation. Next, in the original, I can barely make out, “WIND NOT MOAB” demonstrating for wind power instead of a fossil fuel plant near Moab. One guy demonstrating for the ride itself and one for generic freedom.
Quite a few couples, some even brought their children.
People from all over showed up. PR is for Puerta Rico
Everyone has a beautiful body. Some have just seen a bit more wear and tear. The smile tells it all.
Nudism isn’t just for the young and the beautiful. (I lost those assets a long time ago.) Everyone, regardless of age or weight should love their body and treat it well. One should NEVER feel shame about it.
I don’t remember why we stopped but something sure grabbed our attention.
And the Portland ride is on June 24. It will have several thousand participants. See y’all next year!
