Who wants to take a bet that the ratio of men to women on that ride will be approximately 10/3?

Is there some permit for nakedness?
Why don't these riders get ticketed for indecent exposure?

These days, with digital cameras and the internet, you'd have to be cool with some photo featuring an unfortunate bicycle seat sticking out of your ass being around for the next millenia or so. That and not ever being POTUS. Maybe.

Yeah, that's always been my biggest beef with biking ... to much padding between me and the seat.

:roll:

In related news, June 20th is World Prostate Exam day.

So... would a recumbent be an advantage or disadvantage?

What about for the observers?

Dis. A naked rider on a standard bike would still look less ridiculous than a fully clothed recumbent rider.

You're right – if you're assuming the typical industry-advocated profile where bikers look more like artificial lures in a bass-fishing competition than cognizant humans.

Logos are the modern-day buboes, but far more visible.
