Foska Tony has just appeared in the Cave (Foska HQ), discussing something he did a couple of weeks back; The World Naked Bike Ride. Now, I’m not sure who of you know this, but Foska Tony is my dad, so this did come as a bit of a shock. Story goes that he was talking to someone about hiring a bike when he innocently asked the reason for such a hire. Foska Tony thought this to be a splendid idea and proceeded to disrobe and jump on a bike for the start of the ride. All was going well until around the busy streets of Mayfair, where between the protests of car culture and frivolity, disaster struck. Foska Tony’s chain had jumped clean off his bike, much to the amusement of everyone spectating. He tried fruitlessly to hold his bike up and return the chain for a good number of minutes, which is quite a long time when you’re standing in the buff! After drawing a small crowd the chain was successfully replaced and Foska Tony cycled back off to rejoin the ride to the sound of cheers and applause from the public. I’ve never been so proud of him, although I’m not sure what will happen to Foska’s sales if naked cycling catches on!
The World Naked Bike Ride is a series of naked rides that take place in June all across the UK to protest the car culture that we have fallen into and to also to demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists, drawing in over 1200 people. http://www.worldnakedbikeride.org/uk/ (not for the faint of heart!)
