HOURS TO CLEAN UP THE MESS. STATE POLICE MAY FILE CHARGES AGAINST THE DRIVER WHO HIT THE TRUCK. NEW AT 6:00, A RATHER UNUSUAL REQUEST FROM THE OPERATORS OF THE HUB WAY. PLEASE DON’T RIDE OUR BIKES NAKED. SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE TO SAY, BUST AS BILL SHIELDS TELLS US, AN EVENT PLANNED FOR THIS WEEKEND HAS THE OPERATORS OF HUB WAY A BIT WORRIED. Reporter: BOSTON IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY BICYCLE CENTRIC, BUT WOULD YOU EVER CONSIDER RIDING NAKED? I AM A GERMAPHOBE, SO I COULD NEVER DO THAT. Reporter: LAST YEAR, MANY PEOPLE DID IT TRYING TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT BICYCLE SAFETY. SO THEY ARE DOING IT AGAIN THIS COMING WEEKEND. THE QUESTION IS, WOULD YOU DO IT? YOU HAVE TO BE REAL CAREFUL ABOUT HITTING BUMPS, I GUESS. Reporter: THE PEOPLE WHO RIDE BICYCLES IN HUB — RENT BICYCLES IN HUB WAY SAY PLEASE DON’T RIDE OURS NAKED. PLEASE CONSIDER OTHER RIDER WHO IN THE FUTURE WHILE CONSIDER RIDING YOUR BICYCLE. Reporter: YOU WOULDN’T BE NERVOUS? NO I DON’T THINK SO. ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE ME DO IT NOW? NO, NO. Reporter: BICYCLE SEATS ARE ERGONOMICCALLY DESIGNED. I’M NOT SURE HOW MUCH IT COUNTS IF YOU ARE NOT WEAR ANYTHING PANTS. WHILE YOU ARE CHOKING ON THAT VIDEO, TRUST ME, I WAS WEARING PANTS. BEING AN AVID HUB WAY USER, I PREFER THE NAKED PEOPLE STAY ON THEIR BIKES. Reporter: IN THE NEITHERRERLANDS, BIKES ARE A WAY OF LIFE. THIS COUPLE FROM DENMARK SAYS NO TO NAKED RIDING. I PREFER WITH CLOTHES. Reporter: UNCOMFORTABLE MAYBE? YEAH. Reporter: BICYCLE SEATS ARE REALLY COMFORTABLE, BUT IF YOU CRACK UP WITHOUT CLOTHES ITANCE NOT GOOD. IN BOSTON, I’M BILL SHIELDS, WBZ NEWS. WE JUST NEED A MINUTE. [ LAUGHTER ] THAT IS TOO GREAT. HE’S IN SHAPE. I WOULD THINK PANTS WOULD HELP. ONE WORD IF YOU ARE GOING WITHOUT THE CLOTHING, SANITIZER. THIS REMINDS ME OF THE GOOD NAKED, BAD NAKED. THIS IS UP THERE WITH THE OPENING OF THE PICKLE JAR NAKED. OR THE SANDER. NO, NO SANDING. THIS COULD GO ON FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
