World Naked Bike Ride Is Exactly What It Sounds Like (And It's Awesome)

Cyclists take part in the annual World Naked Bike Ride in central London on June 14, 2014, to protest against car culture and to raise awareness of cycling as an environmentally friendly option. The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is an initiative that takes place in over 50 cities around the world.

Thousands of bikers took to the streets this weekend to ride their bikes in the buff, as part of the annual World Naked Bike Ride event.
The clothing-optional bike rides has taken place in at least 70 cities and 20 countries around the world.

The event dates back to 2004, and carries the motto "Bare as you dare." The purpose? Organizers say it is to demonstrate "the vulnerability of cyclists on the road" and to "protest against oil dependency."
Plus, do you really need an excuse to ride naked on a bike with thousands of strangers? We didn't think so. Although Saturday is the official Naked Bike Ride date in the northern hemisphere, some cities — including New York — held rides on other dates. In New York, nude cyclists took to the streets on Friday.
On Saturday, however, there were naked cyclists riding with pride in London, Chicago and Guadalajara, among other cities. Naturally, some fantastic images and videos surfaced on Instagram, Twitter and Vine. We've embedded a few of our favorites, below:
Warning: Although we did our best to avoid images with overt full-frontal nudity, some of these may be NSFW.
