Want To Ride Your Bike Naked? Visit These Iowa & Minnesota Cities
Riding your bike is a great exercise to stay in shape...especially if you prefer to ride your bike in the nude.
Believe it or not, June is known as "World Naked Bike Ride" month. This month is dedicated to people around the world who enjoy riding their bikes while naked. There are cities in Iowa and Minnesota that actually encourage biking in your birthday suit.
Our friends at Lawnstarter found the 2023's Best Cities for Naked Biking. They compared 200 of the biggest cities in the US and "looked at naked biking events, local interest in nude cycling, bikeability, and legal bumps in the road (like public nudity laws), among 11 total metrics."
Some readers could be wondering if Sioux Falls made the Best Cities for Naked Biking list. Sioux Falls did make the list. However, it's one of the worst cities to ride your bike naked. Sioux Falls sits at #182 on the list.
