Show Your Skills: Naked Cycling Event 6/12

Let It All Hang Out!

This Just In!

Bare What You Dare Bike Ride Taiwan

Saturday, June 12, 2010
3:00pm - 6:00pm
Taichung, Taiwan
Build a bike. Buy a bike. Borrow a bike.

If you wanna get naked, get naked.
If you wanna stay clothed, stay clothed.
Join the cause and wear green drawers.
Use less gas and show your ass.
Wear your skin with pride
And join mother nature's side.

This will coincide with the World Naked Bike Ride.

We will loop through Taichung, from People's Park to People's Park. There will be an after party up at the Dakeng Refuge.

We're still working on the details. But you get the gist. If you want to volunteer your time and talents, before or during, we would love your help.

Taiwan Mountain Biking (Video)

I understand that at times it might seem like I am an ARP (arrogant roadie prick) because I might cringe or comment on all the loaded, fat tired, heavy mountain bikes on the roads in Taiwan that never see more in the way of off-road than a sewer cap. I would just like to say that that is not the case. I am in no way against mountain bikes in any way. More accurately, I am all for seeing bikes used... and even more for seeing bikes used for their intended design purpose or build type. I love seeing road bikes perform on the road and heavy mountain bikes perform in the dirt.

That is why this video is so awesome. This is why bikes should have full shocks, fat tires and soft tails. Really amazing stuff! I love it.
