Nude Cyclists in Casa de Campo, Madrid, Spain

Yup. It’s pretty much what the title says. Nude Cyclists in Casa de Campo.

Ok, ok – she’s wearing a thong.

But close enough.

I snapped a shot of these two free spirits in Casa de Campo today. To be fair, I was half naked at the time myself, and I gotta respect them for going all the way.

Nude cycling… What a concept! (Don’t forget to slather your nuts with sun cream…)


If you’ve spent any amount of time in Spain, you know that Spanish people love to debate about which is better: Madrid or Barcelona?

I’ve been to Barcelona a couple of times, and really it never did much for me. Gaudí. The beach. Whatever.

Mainly what I remember from my last visit was an old guy cycling naked along La Barceloneta. He had impossibly small genitalia and I wondered if perhaps he practiced nude cycling as some sort of overcompensation mechanism.

Well, score one for Madrid in that old debate… Now we have this sort of free-spirited (on weekends) northern European silliness, too!

P.P.S. Updated, years later: I was recently in Berlin, and OMG. There was a park there I would just go ahead and rename “the Forest of Schlongs”. That’s some free-spiritedness fo’ yo’ ass. The number of naked guys hanging around in public was kinda shocking. And just the general weirdness of Berlin. Anyway, it was fun.

P.P.P.S. If you like nudity, you might like my article about sex in Spain as well.


How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
