Sydney Body Art Ride

Barely there
The Sydney Body Art Ride attracted 200 skin-flashing cyclists yesterday to raise money for the Children's Cancer Institute. Organiser Jake Lloyd Jones said 90 per cent of riders painted up for the ride from Randwick racecourse to South Maroubra Beach.

From a couple of days ago:
'Human rainbow' to brighten cancer fundraiser
Semi-nude fundraisers will use peddle power today to raise money for the Children's Cancer Institute in Sydney. Hundreds of cyclists are expected to shed their clothes and instead be covered in environmentally friendly, 100 per cent UV proof paint for the Sydney Body Art Ride.

Can't really see anything similiar to this taking off in Melbourne. Nothing to do at all with the weather. More to do with stagnant inertia, in both 'alternative' and so-called 'mainstream' cycling groups right here in Melb-boring. I'd like to be proven wrong about that. But that's not foreseeable in the near future.
