World Naked Bike Ride

On Sunday there was the annual World Naked Bike Ride through Brighton centre and along part of the seafront. Conservative councillor Dawn Bartlett said "I'm glad it rained" "I don't think they should be doing it along the seafront as there are kids down there" "It's not right. If they want to be exhibtionists they should go over the South Downs". I have my views but What do you think?


  • I was out on the South Downs for a recovey run... any attractive females can be directed that way no problem. All the others should stay at sea level and scare the kids.

    If he thinks that one's surprising he should try the London one, goes right through massive tourist fuelled places like Oxford Street, at peak times!

    No doubt the message of the event is noble, but it generally becomes a haven for exhibitionists and voyeurs!

  • It's the usual British attitude to nudity - that laydees and children would/should be shocked/frightened/corrupted by the sight of a naked person.

    Personally, I don't care if people want to cycle naked, but I don't fancy doing it myself.

    Never mind the weather, that could be a very nasty case of road rash!


  • I heard Meldy and Holly did it.

  • Mean-spirited and inappropriately prudish. 

    The councillor, not Meldy and Holly. They're lovely.

  • My child was on the bus with me and we saw them as we drove by. She thought it was hilarious. The costumes and the spectacle as much as the nudity. People who get offended are bad enough but it annoys me even more when they do it on behalf of "kids". What harm could it possibly have done to my "kid" apart from making her and the rest of the bus have a good laugh.
  • I wouldn't want to live in the killjoy "I'm glad it rained" tory councillors vision of how the world shuld be. What a grey place that would be.
  • The key word in this is 'Tory'. Those narrow minded wankers are never going to see sense
  • the aim was to highlight the vulnerability of cyclists, it wouldn't have made sense to hold the event in some far flung isolated part of the Downs.
  • so there are no children allowed on the downs are there

    The idea of being exposed and having your nads and ass getting red raw on a bicycle seat is an odd appeal,  but each to their own.

    Was he offended by their helmets?

  • What Wilkie says: the naked human body is not sexual in itself  - if you think is is then you're the one with dodgy thinking. Probably very significant that he was a Tory - councillor - he probably pays someone to spank him with a wet mackerel every Friday afternoon image

  • Apparently the tory councillor Dawn Bartlett, has to go before the Standards Committee. Her crime was to send letters to all the travellers in her constituency with directions to green spaces in Brighton that were in other party's constituencies.
  • Ha ha ha - love it image

  • I did the Southampton ride last year, was a good laugh.

    Very cold though image

  • Move along nothing to see.....
