Growing from a handful of people to about a hundred participants, this event is quite the spectator sport with people lining the roads capturing the bicyclists as they make their way from the lake, through the University of Toronto, in front of Queen's Park, by the Toronto Eaton Centre, stopping for a photo op at the pond in Nathan Phillips Square at City Hall before heading back to lake. The bikers head to the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal where they split up, some end the ride on the Toronto Islands (Hanlan's Beach) or continue back to Coronation Park.
Tweed Ride, only without the itchy tweed, and maybe underwear - actually it is almost opposite to the Tweed Ride.
Main Stream and alternate News Media such as Naked News tend to cover the Toronto WNBR and usually Oasis Aqualounge, the up-scale sex club, has an active presence with several representatives on hand. Oasis is in the news recently for the planned disable orgy to be held at the same time as the Parapan Am Games. Those games are impacting everything in Ontario!
Gene Dare, above. Riders are also trying to get a Naked Night Ride going in the style of Montreal or Seattle's events. Remember, you only have to go as bare as you dare.
More biking after the jump.
