I have always wanted to participate in one of these! Two of my favorite things, simultaneously... what could be better?
They've never done one in Boston, though.
I believe the stated intent behind it is to draw attention to the vulnerability of cyclists who share the road with automobiles. The human form is so fragile compared to the tons of steel/other materials comprising a car or a bus or something.
It could also just be an excuse to be weird/naked.
Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
Most of them live in England you'd think. How tan can they really be?
I live in England and I have a tan!
Then again... I do go to France a lot
I believe the usual tactics are like this: Scenario 1 - Go to Spain/Ibiza/Other Mediterranean destination once per year, spend entire time on beach getting lobsterised, and the resultant colour lasts you most of the year. When it fades, use fake tan.
Scenario 2 - Use fake tan
Scenario 3 - Use fake tan THEN go to generic Mediterranean destination, and use fake tan again when you get back
Scenario 4 - If you can afford it, take regular trips outside the UK
It's actually getting quite rare to find an English person (particularly women) that doesn't have a tan... though most of them are fake
I'm male and over 30, FYI.

they have a naked bike ride, once, sometimes twice a year.
it's an organized event that exploits an interesting vermont law: it is illegal to disrobe in public. that is, it's illegal to take your clothing off in public. but technically, you can walk around as naked as you please, as long as you go from clothed to unclothed inside.
it's a pretty big event, even in the cold vermont winter (ie, snow on the ground).
i was a gigantic pussy and never did it. i don't know why not, sounds like my kind of thing.
