January Event

I noticed the article at the URL: http://www.vermontcynic.com/news/347573.htmlI also have noted that many colleges have simular nude traditions, such as nude runs, toga parties and the like at specific events during the school calendar. Since the article did not have any data about the nude bike ride on January 22, 2003, I wondered if this an event that has some history related to it. If so, does that history have some relevant or outstanding event at it roots that might be of interest to people not “in the know”?It seems to me traditions of events like this usually have a meaning if not a tradition that is often based in truth, but often clouded in myths. I would like to have more information.Walter M Green III
