Bike Sharing Company to Boston: Don't Ride our Bikes Nude
The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and you're naked on a bicycle. Sounds like the perfect way to enjoy Boston in the summer, right? But bike-sharing company, Hubway, doesn't want you bearing it all on their bikes for the upcoming World Naked Bike Ride. What a drag. “For the love of all that is decent, please consider the other riders,” a spokesman for Hubway told the Boston Globe in regards to the upcoming event. “While there isn’t anything in the Hubway user agreement that explicitly prohibits riding naked, for safety and sanitary reasons we strongly encourage the wearing of clothing while riding.” RELATED: The Trefecta DRT e-Bike is a Supercar Among Bikes
Hubway has no affiliation with the World Naked Bike Ride, but in 2013, the brand found out many people were using its bikes for the event...completely nude, of course.
This year, it hopes to drastically cut down on the amount of naked people on its bikes, and event organizers are even encouraging riders to at least, “wear underwear, they are public bikes, after all.”
We second that motion.
