World Naked Bike Ride - Chicago

Naked Bike Ride in Chicago June 9, 2012. They were "celebrating freedom from oil and positive body image." They were chanting "less gas more ass" & "burns fat not oil."

Yup if you are in Chicago last Saturday night, stuck in traffic it was caused by hundreds of naked cyclists pedaling through the city. It was the annual Biking naked for a cause.

The Naked Bike Ride is “a people powered happening bringing radical attention against oil addiction. It IS an extreme free speech exercise trying to save the planet. It’s NOT Mardi Gras.”
