Photos from the World Naked Bike Ride 2016

The annual World Naked Bike Ride rolled through the streets of Chicago, creating a spectacle in the name of activism

For one day each summer, a horde of nearly nude (and some completely naked) cyclists hit the city's streets during the annual World Naked Bike Ride. This year, there was more skin on display than at any summer music festival or Chicago beach, but it was all in the name of raising awareness of cyclist rights and positive body image. Take a look at our photos from the ride and see if you get inspired to visit your neighborhood bike shop—you might want to keep your clothes on, though.
