Nude Pedal Cruising in Tokyo
To celebrate Tokyo's annual Pedal Day festivities the Night Pedal Cruising team are organizing a 37km "nude" night ride through Tokyo, entitled Nude Pedal Cruising Midnight.
The ride will begin on Sunday morning (August 18) at 12:30am at Yoyogi Park and wind through the streets of Tokyo travelling over 4 hours through Shibuya, Shinjuku, Aoyama, Roppongi, Tokyo Tower, Shiba Park, Ginza, and Harumi before ending up at the Wakasu Seaside park where participants can watch the sun rise. Riders can then return to Yoyogi Park to take part in the Pedal Day 2013 festivities.
While the ride is billed as being a "nude" ride I believe under fear of arrest it will be a semi-clothed ride, but cyclists of all state of undress are welcome.
Complete details of the event can be found here. While the Pedal Day 2013 homepage is here.
I did attend the Nude Pedal Cruising ride and you can read my ride report here.
