It was a hot summer evening, but the sweaty conditions didn't discourage hundreds of cyclists from showing up (sans most of their clothing) for the annual World Naked Bike Ride. After gathering in the West Loop, the mass of stripped down riders set out on a route that took them through River North, Wicker Park and Lincoln Park. Raising awareness of cyclist rights and positive body image, the group turned heads and elicited confused stares throughout the city.
