Despite a couple negative moments, the shock of so many private parts quickly dissipated and was replaced by respect for the people who were so comfortable with their bodies. In a society so fixated on obtaining an unrealistic ideal, it was refreshing to see so many people completely at ease, no matter their physical fitness. Bicyclists were riding around, proudly letting it all hang out, and I had to admit I thought it was kind of cool.
Although I applaud the courage, I'm not going to dust off my bike and join the next parade. I'll leave that to the professionals. Plus, it looked really, really uncomfortable. The anatomical contortion required for a successful unicycle ride was nothing short of mystifying. Instead, I'll start small and not apologize for blinding people when I wear shorts.
Are you offended by nudity? How do you feel about children attending an event like this?
While the vast majority of the crowd were fun loving and harmless, there were a couple of people who were aroused by the attention. These two or three people are the reason why we need indecent exposure laws in place. One guy even did jumping jacks to show himself off. There were children in the crowd. It was completely inappropriate. Bodies are a natural thing and if parents don't want to shield their kids from a bunch of naked bikers, that's their choice. When someone decides to be lewd, it completely changes the dynamic.
