For a match only made in Portland, the Portland Art Museum is pairing up with the World Naked Bike Ride. On June 8th the art museum opens opens up their Cyclepedia exhibit. June 8th also happens to be the night of the world naked bike ride. Naturally they decided to team up!
The world naked bike ride is an event that takes place every year in June and features a few thousand people riding around Portland, sans clothes. Watch this video for an explanation.
When I heard of this pairing my first thought was gross. I know some people who participate in this bike ride and it is not good naked. I was wondering to myself if the art museum would be featuring naked riders as a exhibit or something. That is not the case, instead the exhibit is related to bike designs, which I think is pretty cool. Portland has a huge bike culture and I even prefer to ride my bike to work. It looks like they are going to have some pretty cool bike designs on display. But I haven’t even told you about the best part of this pairing. Admission on June 8th is free…with a catch. The museum between 8 pm and 10 pm will charge admission based on how many articles of clothing you are wearing. So no clothes equals no charge. Who’s joining me!by
