Believe It Or Not!

Posted by 2 on

Believe it or not, there is an annual “World Naked Bike Ride” in Toronto and I have the images to prove it! Please beware: these photos are not for the faint of heart. Please don’t confuse the above event with the new Tail Wags “Mothers Against Naked Riding” (M.A.N.R.) campaign. If people want to ride around the streets of Toronto on their bikes without any clothes on, that’s their business. Personally I can’t imagine how anyone survives sitting in a bike seat without any shorts on. I barely survive an hour-long spinning class even when I’m wearing my padded bike shorts. But to each his own! The M.A.N.R. campaign is aimed at encouraging more people to wear their safety helmets and I’m pleased to report the participants in the Naked Bike Ride WERE wearing bike helmets! Do you and your children wear safety helmets when biking, skating, skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing? Are you a passionate believer in helmet safety? If yes, please join our M.A.N.R. campaign by:
  • Sharing on Twitter why helmet safety is important to you (hashtag #StopNakedRiding).
  • “Like” the Tail Wags Facebook page at
  • Tell your friends about the M.A.N.R. campaign and ask them to join you in supporting this important cause.

Together we can help keep all of our children safe!

  • Dear Gene,
    I’m not as gusty as you but I certainly support the causes you are bringing awareness to through your Naked Ride! I was delighted to see most of your naked riders were still wearing their safety helmets.

  • I was just invited to join the Naked Riders this summer in their Toronto parade. Unfortunately, I’m not as brave as they are.

  • What a powerful statement!!!
    I’d have to say that this is very effective!! Well at least I hope it is.
