A rather broad range of folks worked against that, not just "hippies". But ok, we'll take that and raise you:
http://www.oregonlive.com/cycling/index ... _port.html
" When the museum planned to bring "Cyclepedia" to Portland -- the only place in the U.S. that will host the collection -- it reached out to cycling groups. It happened that the date for Portland's annual version of the World Naked Bike Ride coincided with the first day of the bike exhibit.
And so it is on June 8, cyclists in various stages of undress will meet at the museum. They'll get a special deal to see "Cyclepedia" from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., when the ride begins: The price of admission to the show is $1 per item of clothing. That means no clothes -- no charge. " :mrgreen:

This also looks neat: http://www.portlandartmuseum.org/specia ... dia/bigtop

Regardless, we were just emulating our more urbane & educated Swedish role models: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluoridati ... try#Sweden
