Cyclists strip for Santa Cruz alley cat ride
By JENNIFER SQUIRESSentinel staff writer
SANTA CRUZ — Wearing pink boy-cut briefs, Taylor Saxe and Dana Landing led a group of pantless cyclists in stretches moments before the No-Pants Alley Cat bike race started Saturdayafternoon. About 20 underwear-clad riders gathered at the Town Clock for the scavenger hunt-style cycle across the county.
"If they really think this is indecent exposure, boo to them," Landing said. "Thumbs down"
And then of course there was the punny, “concerns about police stopping their nearly-naked event were barely there.” Funny you might bring that up, because I did notice while driving my patrol car around the downtown area that there were a couple of young ladies riding their bikes in brightly colored men's underwear. And since I am a straight white male, the last thing I was going to do is bring this to their attention. I may have been a case of selective amnesia and I wasn’t going to be the one to spoil it for everyone else.
