Anchorage naked bike ride canceled after warning from police
The event’s Facebook page was taken down after organizers were contacted by Anchorage police, but several automatically created pages (not created by the organizers) for the event remain alive on the Internet.
APD Sgt. Denielle Hrovat said she tracked down the organizers of the event to tell them that they could be cited if people rode naked in Anchorage.
