Los Angeles World Naked Bike Ride Photos for 2019

I rode only the afternoon loop on this year's World Naked Bike Ride in Los Angeles. I had three GoPros, each shooting one photo every five seconds during the ride. Two of the cameras faced rearward and on forward. The complete collection of photos is here. There's an icon for a slideshow near the upper right corner of that page. I tried to sync the clocks on the three cameras, but they don't allow you to set the seconds, so they're out of sync with each other over a spread of a minute or so. The route changed some this year, partly due to construction on the LA River bike path, so if you enjoy looking at these photos for what's in the background, you'll see some different scenery in this year's photos.

What follows are a few of the photos:

I'm pretty sure these two were not together, but while we waited for a traffic light they seemed to mirror each others body language unconsciously.

There were a lot of motorcycle cops along on the ride.
They were tremendously helpful and had to stop at least a couple of drivers who thought they could just drive right into us, as if we would magically disappear out of their way.

A naked bystander
. Not part of the ride at all, but an observer from the side of the road. I guess we inspired him. Too bad he didn't have a bike!

We entered the LA River bike path at the point where we exited in previous years.

And we exited the bike path via a little dirt path.

The first time I rode the LAWNBR we went past this church and they called the cops.
This is the first time we've ridden by it again. No problems this time.

And then we re-entered the LA River bike path.
