Modest coverage for World Naked Bike Ride

Well, there was more news than normal on St. Louis TV channels Saturday, meaning that the World Naked Bike Ride got modest coverage rather than maximum exposure. Still, the ride got coverage, which is what organizers Stephanie Co and Mariah Pittman sought.

KMOV-TV, Channel 4, posted a story and video ofthe event. The KMOV cameras were aimed strategically so you couldn't see those who dared to bare. I know I'm a little biased here, but I have to say one of the more modestly dressed cyclists shown on the video was really stylin'! He was wearing the 2008 Tour de Stooges T-shirt!

KSDK-TV, Channel 5, also posted a brief story. KSDK also says it has video of the event, but I was unable to view the video tonight.

Neither KTVI-TV, Channel 2, nor KPLR-TV, Channel 11, had coverage available online tonight. since I was working Saturday night, I did not see either of their newscasts.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also wrote a story, but as of this writing, had not posted any photos. But Beth, the author of the Verbosity VeloCity blog, wrote about her experiences on the ride and posted pictures at her Picasa site. Beth warns that some of the photos may not be suitable for the workplace.

Finally, a video from the ride showed up on YouTube on Sunday. I include it below (Note: The video may not be appropriate for some workplaces):

Roger, thanks for the links over to my blog and pics.

FYI the modestly dressed Tour de Stooges t-shirt wearer happened to be my hubby. ;)
