Nude Bicyclist: Don't You Love the North Coast?

Nude Bicyclist

By Joyce Benton

Last November, local real estate agent Joyce Benton saw a group of bicyclists riding down the Wildcat into Ferndale.  The first one was conventionally dressed

…then the next fellow was bare chested in the rain… looking a little Matt Damonish and I gave him a friendly hello and wave, thankyou. Then the next fellow who was working hard coming up the hill – Hello! Full Monty! ….[Then] I came upon this fellow who was “bringing up the rear”! It was fine with him if I took his photo if I wasn’t going to call the police! …

She asked him where he was from and he explained he was from Germany.

Humboldt–California’s most European County.

Don’t you love it here?

  • I’ve actually heard that nude hiking is popular in Germany. It’s a thing people do. I think it’s cool. Thanks for sharing.

  • I love it, but hiking is one thing, biking seems a little rough. Ouch.

  • I can see some advantage, speaking as one who deals with a lot of rain-and-sweat-soaked bike clothes, but that descent in a November shower… how do you say “hypothermia” in German? And there goes any incentive to draft in tight formation!

    Can’t wait to hear Old Man R. weigh in on this one….

  • Nudity is not such a big deal in northern Europe. People sunbathe nude on most beaches in Germany and Sweden. In Copenhagen, women sunbathe topless in city parks.

    In other words, the human body is seen as part of the natural world, not a dirty joke.

  • Hiking in the Trinity Alps, I once had a pleasant conversation with a young woman from France who was topless… as was I. Being an old hippie, it seemed normal.

    I see you remember that she was topless. Do you remember what you talked about???
    If you are truly normal… You probably don’t.

    Some guys have all the fun.

  • My sister and I were hiking around Mono Lake, and we came on a lovely little mineral pond. I said there’s no one for miles, let’s skinny-dip on in! My sister was hesitant, but we scanned the wide horizon, and went for it.

    Then we heard voices! Shit, three people, a couple and their teenage daughter came right for us before we could slip away. The father said “Oh, I supposed you Americans didn’t do this,” and started taking off his boots. The whole family climbed in with us. They were German tourists. It was a lovely visit.
