Editor’s Note: The following story includes a content warning for video that contain brief nudity.
The “World Naked Bike Ride in St. Louis” Facebook page
encourages bikers to “protest oil dependency,“ ”raise awareness of
cyclist rights,“ and advocate a ”positive body image” by taking to the
streets of St. Louis on their bicycles.
An estimated 500 people turned up, according to KDSK, and the movement reportedly has fans in 70 cities and 20 different countries.
But even if riding a bicycle naked in the dark could actually accomplish
any of those things, at what point does a sane person decide not to
bring their children to the event?
