Whether anyone of us really wanted to witness it or not, it was difficult not to applaud the bravado and lack of body shame shown by participants in The World Naked Bike Ride, which wound its way through Los Angeles yesterday. This annual activism tour is not only organized to “put a stop to indecent exposure of people and the planet to pollution” and to bolster support for alternative transportation, but is also that rare cycling event where we caution you to think twice before you compliment a rider's helmet.

After an epic taco tour, we were just settling down into beers at Mohawk Bend on a car-jamming Sunset Boulevard when roughly 40 riders passed through, mostly male, many of them completely nude. We saw at least one super-long dong and one hauntingly hirsute dude booty, but after a while all the naked people didn't actually seem like too big of a deal. Hats (and everything else) off to these birthday suit bicyclists. Stay naked my friends!
