I'm afraid I'd have to care a lot more than I do now to bicycle anywhere naked. :) I care but not quite that much :)

I saw the pig with the wellies the other day. I thought he was adorable. Now if I got naked on a bicycle I don't think I'd be that cute, although I might look like a pig! Amazing pictures Allison!
