Naked bike ride in Santiago

This past Saturday, 250 bicyclists rode naked or nearly naked through the streets of Santiago, Chile to raise awareness of the cyclists on the road.

This was Chile’s first World Naked Bicycle Ride, a movement started in 2004 by Conrad Schmidt and brought together a coordinated effort of existing groups such as Manifestacion Ciclonudista from Spain. The movement, green in nature, is an effort to raise the awareness of alternatives to car driving, promoting self-sufficiency, and health through exercise among others.

Happy cycling!
