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.)

One of my friends from acting class.

 

 

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.

These were our police escorts for the day. They were loving it!

Safety first. Tho, he really needs a helmet to get the message across.

Four riders, four issues.

 

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.

Crossing over US 101, on our way to downtown.

 

 

 

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!

  1. The Portland ride was so much fun. It would be fun to travel to LA and ride next year. I think I’ll try and rope my kids in. Although my 5 year old won’t have a problem with it–he’s nude all the time! haha! So glad to see you had so much fun. I haven’t heard from anyone who doesn’t share those sentiments. That speaks volumes don’t you think? Peace Fred, Kristen

    • I saw a couple of couples with their preteens and there didn’t seem to be anything but smiles and giggling. A few teens too, they tended to want some kind of minimal cover. Of course, there were people with speedos and g-strings and pasties and whatnot. I don’t get along with nudists who insist everyone has to be totally nude or they don’t play along. It is about freedom, not requiring a particular choice.

      July 5 was World Read a Book Naked Day. That happened to be our anniversary. I believe World Garden Naked Day was May 6. Someone must have decided that World (fill in the blank) Naked Day is a good marketing idea. Much more participation in Europe.

      Hike Naked day is my personal favorite – but it was 110 here that day. Then there is the Bare to Breakers in SF, 3rd Sunday in May. It was a lot of fun but the nudies who participated were a bit diluted by 40K clothed people. I do a bit of nude acting and singing as well.

      Both my children were allergic to clothing when they were young. But as they became socialized from school, they needed to fit in with their peers and I wasn’t going to get in the way of that.
