The World Naked Bike Ride is taking off on Saturday (Jun. 14), as cyclists strip down to their birthday suits and ride for 12 miles to protest Americas oil dependency.
Event coordinator Andrew Bedno says the event has evolved into a pants-off pedal party thats been embraced by everyone in the Windy City.
He says, I think the mayor must be saying, Its alright, let them be a little naked because weve only had a few arrests. As long as nipples are covered and you dont goad police youre fine.
According to Bedno, the biggest issue bikers in the buff face isnt foreign oil or even a smelly bike seat.
He says, Our biggest problem is drunks who step in our way as were riding and moon us. It happened two or three dozen times last year. They dont understand the risk they put themselves in.
