Thank you all for making Saturday night a HUGE success! We had an estimated 300 participants, maybe more (does anyone have a better count?) and zero arrests. The police were very cooperative, helping block traffic when necessary. We biked towards fireworks, past crowds of cheering supporters, past gas stations (suckers), by the Stadium even though we were strongly encouraged not to, by the Arch, and through Washington Avenue where we surrounded confused cars by the masses.
We couldn't have done this without all your support - thank you to everyone who helped, whether it was with publicity, telling your friends, making the trek to Tower Grove Park, or just showing up.
Hopefully this is a good memory for all and you'd like to capture the memory forever through documentation, so I've set up a flickr account (thankfully intelligent people have found it already and started posting).
Here's the group: http://flickr.com/groups/nakedbikestl/
For more pictures, check out the River Front Times photo essay: http://riverfronttimes.com/slideshow/view/11180600. Also, I found a blog, dangerous intersection, that was a nice photo essay: http://dangerousintersection.org/2008/08/03/naked-bicycle-ride-2008-st-louis-to-discourage-dependency-on-oil/#comment-22718.
If I figure out how to post some photos on here, I'll do it. Unfortunately, I don't have any of my own, so if you have any you want on here, go ahead and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also email us there if you have any comments/suggestions for next year's bike ride or want to help us organize that one. Or any pleasant anecdotes... those are good too.
Thanks again, and stay cool this week!
