Bum Steering

Cyclists in cities around the world have taken part in the World Naked Bike Ride over the weekend. Started in 2004, the clothing-optional protest aims to promote cycling as a greener mode of transportation, and encourage a body-positive culture. San Francisco, London, Madrid, Amsterdam and Guadalajara were also among the cities that took part this year.


Seattle, of course, needs no excuse to find a nude cyclist or two as this photo from Westlake Park demonstrates - and for the ultimate in nude cycling, next weekend in Seattle there’s the infamous painted naked cyclists ( run at the Fremont Fair.


Word of warning though about anyone thinking of going nude cycling: when the bike stops, not everything else does.
