The Atlantic Monthly
is a high-minded publication that devotes countless column inches to topics such as economics, global security threats, GMO—and naked Portlanders on bikes.
Here's the report
from a reluctant first-time participant, Christina Cooke:
"After years of giving in to excuses like 'It's raining,' 'I'm too
tired,' or 'I don't want my bare breasts roving the city streets,' I
decided this year to
squelch my inhibitions, take off my top and participate in the
-annual World Naked Bike Ride," writes Cooke, a former WW
intern. "I'll admit, the thought of being nude—both on a bike and in an art
museum—made me want to round up and put on all my jackets at once."
