I've never ridden a bike in the nude and this is because I am very wary of hitting a bump too hard and introducing the saddle to my prostate. Some people do it on a yearly basis, and they love it. Four weeks are dedicated to the obscure holiday. Those four weeks are World Naked Bike Ride month.

'I mean, it's not as if we don't have it,' she said hurriedly. 'Our savings account is very healthy.' I nodded, forgetting for a moment that she couldn't see me and then hoping that she'd sense my understanding. I felt saddened that like so many others, she felt that the love affair she was having with writing wasn't worthy of her time and money. That she didn't deserve to have this passion in her life.

Back in the 1990s when I was some sort of feckless idiot, I was a member of the high-IQ organisation Mensa.
