Hundreds of cyclists have bared all for the World Naked Bike Ride around Byron with the aim of promoting body positivity, cyclist safety, and taking care of the environment.
Pedestrians got an eyefull as men and women stripped down for Sunday’s 12th annual ride around the coastal tourist town.
Hundreds gathered in little more than a helmet, while most covered their bodies in colourful paint to cycle through Byron Bay’s main street.
The ride aimed to highlight the vulnerability of cyclists to motorists, promote cycling as an alternative to cars, protest the use of fossil fuels, and to encourage positive body image for everyone.
Some shier participants donned underwear, but most brave riders opted to cycle completely nude.
One man wore a high-vis vest with ‘can you see me now?’ written on it, referencing one of the event’s purposes to promote road safety for cyclists.
Another man painted ‘give way’ on his back inside a triangle resembling an actual road sign, while others had ‘get naked Australia’ scrawled on their torsos.
