Chicago Bike Week kicks off tomorrow and, as usual, the city has a full slate of events planned. However, savvy cyclists are probably more excited about the World Naked Bike Ride, an annual, unofficial occurrence in which riders strip down to their skivvies and take to the streets to raise awareness about oil dependence and cyclist rights.


Exact details of the route and starting location are usually kept under wraps until the day of the ride, but the group typically gathers near the former Harpo Studios and begins the ride at 9pm. For additional information, check out the the World Naked Bike Ride website: chicagonakedride.org.


In the meantime, you can get a preview of the clothesless festivities by taking a look at our pictures from last year's ride as well as our photos from 2012 and 2011.  Be advised that all of the slideshows contain nudity (duh).
