One of the other legends about this ride is that because Godiva was naked the general populace had to turn their backs. this was done, all except one Little boy called Tom - the original "Peeping Tom"! These two events form a great deal of local legend but unlike Nottingham I don't feel that Coventry manages (or maybe doesn't try) to capitalise on this.
