Why Are These Cyclists Riding Around Naked?

Forget #FreetheNipple! Thousands of riders across the world participated in the Naked Bike Ride over the weekend and they're freeing a whole heck of a lot more than just a boob.

First of all, ouch. Second of all, why?

According to the World Naked Bike Ride's website (beware, link contains NSFW images), they are doing it for a couple of reasons. In addition to trying to expose (quite literally, in this case) the dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians, they're also speaking out against "the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy."

The ride is held in 70 cities and 20 countries and they get some pretty good crowds. Portland, which has the largest ride (not that size matters), had over 8,000 naked cyclists participating in the event last year.

Unlike traditional cycling, nude cycling is not surprisingly proving to be a spectator's sport as well, with hundreds of people coming out just to watch the naked pedal-pushers.

What do you guys think of the whole thing? We can't imagine the tough questions kids were probably asking their parents if they happened to catch a glimpse of it.
