Let's do the Portland World Naked Bike Ride!

Postby Elliot » Sun May 21, 2017 4:59 pm

Not Burn related, but not commercial. Just a cool thing to do, which happens to also have some connection to my BM camp.

The World Naked Bike Rides take place all over the World at various times. Some draw a dozen riders. Some a few hundred. Then there is Portland, Oregon, with 10,000 riders! Ten Thousand!

This year, hopefully I will be number 10,001. How about you?

June 24 is the date. The ride is in the evening.

I live in Clearlake, about 90 miles north of Sacramento and also the Bay Area. And I plan to drive Millicent, my Playa bus, to Portland.
Though not by myself.

But if a handful Burners and maybe others will join me and pay for the fuel, we can all go!

Millicent has several bunks, and a bathroom. And plenty room for bikes and other gear. She is noisy and uncomfortable, but reliable. We drive her on several annual trips -- averaging 5,000 miles a year.

Send me a PM if you are seriously interested.
Otherwise, post clever wisecracks.

Alas, the trip to Portland is off. My primary travel-mates have had to cancel, and that makes it too rich for me to make the long drive.
Next year, I really must plan better -- spread the word better, to reach more prospective participants. Somebody suggested having flyers to hand out on Playa. Maybe not flyers, which tend to become moop -- especially when folks have no pockets. But a poster might work, right in the bike shop lobby/bar/piano-lounge. Could have a contact list signup sheet there. Thoughts?

You're resourceful. Just set up your bike with a toilet seat.
