On June 7, 2008, a couple of hundreds people participated in the second Cyclonudiste, the French version of the World Naked Bike Ride organized throughout the world. Their aim is to denounce the "indecent exposure" to cars and their pollution, promote cycling and body-awareness. 3 participants were arrested for "exhibitionism", despite nudity not being considered an offense under French law (unless in case of "provocative or obscene attitude"). As a result, most participants had to ride in their underwear to avoid arrest.

 

The bewildered crowd watches and cheers the naked riders as they pass by :-) To trick the police, some dropped their underwear while riding and quickly put them back when police was nearby !
