Naked old ladies of the world, unite!

I bought a copy of the Big Issue this morning. It advertises today’s
Naked Bike Ride ‘to protest against car culture and oil dependency.’

I have no problem with that …, but then it adds
‘herds of naked cyclists will be scaring old ladies around Britain’.

My hackles rose – hang on folks, I bet some of those ‘old ladies’ will be joining in the ride! Less of the sexism and ageism in your 'humour', please.

(Copied from my post on our women's blog... )

At any event the thought of it got me out, fully clothed, and on a borrowed bike, to hone my urban cycling skills for forty minutes this afternoon.

I couldn't persuade Tilly the dog to take up naked cycling.
