World Naked Bike Ride - London

Naked cyclists decry a bum rap

The vulnerability of cyclists on the road was highlighted in one of the world's "oldest forms of protest" when 70 riders bared their bodies in Golden Bay on Saturday.

Unlike last year, when 200 people signed a petition to try to stop the event, there was no organised protest against the fourth annual World Naked Bike Ride from Tarakohe to Pohara.

However, one passing motorist in a van shouted at cyclists: "Get your clothes on!". The children in the back seat of the van were covering their eyes with their hands.

Well I can't ride a bike and I would have to travel too far to get the neighborhood it happens in here in Chicago.
