World Naked Bike Ride, Chicago Version

Strange and beautiful things happen in large cites. This is just one of them.

World Naked Bike Ride, June 9, 2017, Chicago Style :

The slogan of this ride was:

Celebrating freedom from oil and the beauty of people!

An enjoyable way to be «free from oil» is to ride a bike. And what better way to celebrate the beauty of people than to take off as much clothing as you feel «comfortable» witout reaching the point of embarrassment or self-shame.

The event’s architects planned for this.  Some significant number of riders wore some clothing or sported large amounts of body paint. What’s more, in Chicago you are subject to arrest if, man or woman, you reveal full frontal nudity  . In the spirit of the event the police tended to let it go. There were a significant number of people who participated au naturel.

Events like this Bike Ride in Chicago draw participants from smaller towns who have no practical way to pull this off in their home community.

  1. Thank you so muh to those who have posted comments. I am embarrassed to say I hadn’t wanted to post it yet because it’s not finished. It has to do with the World Naked Bike Ride and more specifically to our local Chicago Naked Bike Ride 2017.

    I was in the hospital for a couple of days and still not at 100%, except maybe for orneriness.

    Please come back in a couple of days and read the whole thing. I promise it will be thought provoking!

    Thanks to all, Rich

    1. Hi Elle, the really interesting thing is that Chicago has laws against appearing naked in public spaces like streets. But in organized cases like this after dark, the police simply look the other way. This is true in other large cities too. Also, I’m sure you noticed that not all riders were completely naked. Timid riders are allowed by the organizers to cover any part of their body that would otherwise embarrass them. The participants seem to have a wonderful time, and the spectators almost always
      shout their encouragement.
