Thousands of cyclists in various stages of undress, rode through several major cities across the world on Saturday (June 11) as part of the World Naked Bike Ride campaign.

In Toronto, hundreds of bikers began assembling at Coronation Park by the Toronto waterfront and rode through the streets, ending their fun at the Jack Layton Memorial Docks.

The clockwise route passed through many of Toronto’s landmarks and popular areas – Trinity Bellwood’s Park, Kensington Market, University of Toronto, Queen’s Park, Yorkville, Yonge Street, Church Street, Ryerson University, Dundas Square, City Hall and the bank towers on Bay Street. At the docks, the riders had the option of getting on the ferry to travel to the Hanlan Point ‘clothing optional’ beach. Several of them wore only helmets and body paint.

The riders were campaigning with the slogan “Less gas, More ass” on the roads to protest against the world’s dependence on oil. The event is now in its 12th year, and has spread to over 75 cities in 17 countries. – CINEWS
