Naked Cyclists, A Blogger’s Best Friend

Today I offer you incontrovertible proof of one of the fundamental principles of the internet, in the form of this blog’s stats.


This humble blog typically receives almost no traffic whatsoever, allowing its proprietor to post what he wishes with nary a thought about how it might be received, and our patented statcycle to meander along the gentle hills and valleys of day-to-day page view fluctuation without becoming winded.

However one innocent little post, two weeks ago, about the World Naked Bike Ride, generated more than ten times the normal traffic, despite its terrifying lead image of pipe-swinging tattooed London exuberance. And that post’s after effects continue to be felt to this day, as naked-cyclist-seekers alight on this blog in search of naked-cyclist-information and, dare I say, naked-cyclist-tittilation.

Thereby proving an immortal principle, namely that the internet exists to deliver pictures of naked people.

Well if that’s what the people want, that’s what the people shall have. I hereby present a veritable rainbow of naked cyclists, for your viewing enjoyment.*


Thereby also proving a second timeless maxim, namely “ye blogger will do anything to increase ye stats.”

“Only in Seattle” will you find one dozen naked rides in one year! Only Sydney, Australia and Portland, Oregon as far as I know have multiple rides.

We have art rides , Body Pride Ride and World Naked Bike Ride Seattle and Critical Ass is the summer.

This year we also have a new event: The Gardens Everywhere Bike Parade!

Come join us for a day of clothing optional revelry through some of the funnest locations in North Seattle. We’ll be biking from gardens to markets to painted intersections and more. Learn neighborhood gardening tips and locations, and of course we’ll assist in any important projects we see along the way. Celebrate gardens in Seattle! Join the fun!

When: Sat, 29 Aug 2009, Meetup @ 11 AM (volunteers setup before), ride starts @ 1 PM
Where: Start location at Om Culture. Om Culture is a multi-use yoga, dance and music space opening September 2009 in Wallingford. The space has 4500 sq. ft of wood floor, 20′ high ceiling flooded with natural light. The space is located just two blocks Northeast of Gas Works Park at 3514 Bagley AVE N, Seattle, WA 98103

Great teaser effect although I was ‘innocently’ reading the Yahoo Groups postings.

Great color and placement. Now if we get the SPD to ride like that ….
