I’ll just preface with this was not a good surprise…and that’s where I’ll end my editorial!
Saturday afternoon I went for a run–I took a route that I wouldn’t normally take but I was on a schedule and wanted to pack in 4 miles. Side note–33 minutes later, 4 miles run and done. And that included the few minutes that I was forced to stop for a road block.
The road block was the Madison Naked Bike Ride. I noticed that traffic was slowing down so I couldn’t cross the road. And then I heard a lot of noise. Here came the naked bikers. I wish I could show you a picture of my face. My mouth pretty much dropped to the sidewalk.
These folks were letting it all hang out. Really–all of it. I hope they were wearing sunscreen.
The worst part of it all/the thing that really made me say “Ewwwwwww” out loud: seeing that some folks were riding the Madison Community Bikes!
So here’s a tip–if you find yourself renting a community bike–wipe and sanitize it before you ride it!
What’s one of the “strangest” things you’ve seen while out for a run/walk?
ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. i would freak out if i saw naked people riding the b-cycles!! lol
OH MY GOSH. That is the most insane thing I have ever heard. I have heard of races WITHIN nudist communities…you know, blocked off! But not a bike ride. That sounds like the most uncomfortable thing in the entire world.
No Way! That is hilarious! Yesterday I saw a baby and momma deer on the bike trail in downtown Milwaukee – I have no idea how they got there!
Haha- in SF it’s not that unlikely to see naked people running, rollerblading, or riding their bike. Never a pretty site!!!
Oh…wow!!! That’s something I’m glad I didn’t see, Ewwww!! haha!!
Strangest thing I saw was a transgender parade when I was walking on vacation once…something else I def. don’t feel I needed to see, but I admire anyone being able to walk at a semi-fast paced walk with 4 or 5-inch stilettos, lol!
oh my god that kills me!
Haha! I actually had the same thing happen to me when I was on vacation in Madrid. Woke up in the morning and heard shouting outside my hotel. Looked out the window and yes…. naked people on bikes…
Hahaha I had to comment on this post! That is so gross! People are crazy!
I’m not surprised your jaw dropped! That is so wrong and especially on community bikes *shudder* – and it must be so uncomfortable!!
I once found it hilarious that I was cycling back from riding my horse, in my scruffy yard clothes and not going that fast, and suddenly, a huge group of racers came cycling up behind me, all in their Lycra and going about 100mph (maybe!) They streaked past like I was standing still but it really made me laugh that for about half a second, I was in the lead 🙂
