So in my new city of Portland, biking is like a religion. There are all sorts of bicycle related events throughout the year. One of the ones I have not had the privilege to experience yet is the Portland Naked Bike Ride. I read about it in a Portland guide I picked up a few weeks ago, and lo and behold, last week, Ariel busted out this pose at the Hipbone Studio. I had a pretty good drawing day, and was able to capture hints of her props (helmet and bike).
