Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

We are hoping to have trained personnel along to act as field medics.


Naked or dressed?

Don't believe everything you read in the papers. I wouldn't get on a bike without being fully dressed in orange. It would be too dangerous otherwise.

Henry Vilas wrote:The operative word is "indecently."

Addressing the meaning of “indecently”:

Those who have actually read the Wisconsin lewdness statute know that there is a footnote which refers to Reichenberger v. Warren, 319 F. Supp. 1237 (1970), concerning the definition of “public”. Those who have read the Reichenberger decision know that it refers to the fact that Wisconsin case law, in deciding what is “indecent” defers to U. S. Supreme Court decisions defining what is “obscene”, specifically what is deemed to be so under Roth v. United States, 354 U.S. 476 (1957) “and its subsequent decisions.” The Roth case, which was in effect at the time of Reichenberger, was superseded by Miller v. California, 413 U.S. 15 (1973). Under Miller, just about anything that has “serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value” may not be ruled to be obscene, and is therefore entitled to First Amendment protection. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller_v_california

The only people who should be naked in public are those who are paid to be naked or are asked by lots of people to take their clothes off. If you volunteer to be naked in public and nobody has offered you money or asked you to be naked, chances are nobody wants to see you and your naked junk. Please stop and help keep America beautiful.

So perhaps this is what social networkng is all about. Let's give 'em the support and meanwhile look the other way. They get their ya-yas out; we gaze at our navels. All is well.

More power to 'em. People are way too damned uptight about nudity.
So where exactly did it take place? How was the turnout and the over/under?
Where's the flood of Flickr photos from the wonderful photo op?

If you looked at the first post in this thread, it says, "The World Naked Bike Ride will take place in Madison on Saturday, June 19, 2010 at 11:00. The route will be in the downtown area, starting location TBA." So you are asking what happened at an event that hasn't occurred yet.
