Of all places, it is listed on the Dane County Farmers' Market website schedule as being June 21.

Thanks, strange to find it listed there. The farmers must enjoy it.
I also found it here:

Does this mean it's legal to take off your clothes and go bike riding? Is a permit needed?

I suspect any full-on Beavers will get asked by the cops to add panties. Sux, don't it.

From photos I've seen many riders don't wear panties or underwear.

I saw the naked bike ride go down Willy Street last year. Naked as jaybirds, the whole lot of 'em. At first I thought, "geez, that's a weird color of spandex all those people are wearing...."

If you think people's buns look funny from the back when you come up behind someone wearing those black biker tights, you ought to try it when they aren't wearing anything at all.

Like a sticky bun, perhaps?

Looks like good weather Saturday. The riders are gong to get a good tan.

Just me, or is anyone else amused that we have comments on a naked bike ride by someone called "Beaver" and that the bike ride goes down Willy Street?

Naturally one starts to wonder what sort of thought process goes into the planning of a Naked Bike Ride.

It goes without saying they'll have to hit Johnson Street, Richard Street, View Road and Sighting Road.

With proper planning they can also cover Starker Avenue, Jewel Court, Breese Terrace, Tailwind Ct. and Whitetail Lane. It seems appropriate that they consider side trips to Natural Avenue and New Freedom Lane and Randy Lane.

I hope the female riders won't pass up on Spicebush Lane, Mound Street, Mound View Road, Valley View Rd, Dewey Court, Venus Way and Cat Tail Drive. But avoid congregating at the intersection of Hooker Avenue and Pleasure Drive. I'll leave Cherry Avenue up to your discretion, but recommend avoiding Stirrup Lane, Goose Lake Drive, Ash Street, Downer Circle, Old Fox Run, and last but not least: Whistling Road.

Men, avoid Wood Circle, Lane, and Drive. Don't even consider Woody Lane, Woodview, Grandwood, or any street with "wood" in it, be it Wyldewood or Rockwood or numerous other examples. Walnut Street... no. Upham Street... no. Rockwood.... no. Post Road? No. Long Drive and Long Street, Big Timber Trail or Mammoth Circle? In your dreams. Hard Disk Drive? Uh uh.

Burning Wood Way? Sure, that would be funny. So would Dicky Lane and Frost Woods Lane. Grimm Street? Sounds appropriate. Can't deny you Babcock Drive because the ice cream's too good to pass up. Sirloin Strip? Not sure about that.

Spartan Drive and South View Road are a must. Imagine Street is out of the way, but the irony makes it worth the distance.

To make a true Madison political statement, you must visit both Ronald Reagan Avenue and Progressive Lane.

I've already staked out my spot to observe on Lookout Trail!

Good ones. They should also take Pleasure Drive and may get some interest on Hooker Ave on the North East side. Hooker Ave and Pleasure Drive intersect, of course.

That was fun. There should be a naked bike ride more often in Summer. If you missed it there is one in Milwaukee July 12.

OK Beav, but I gotta ask. Did you ride or just go to gawk?
