Chafing Hazard BIKE RIDE

The commitment - not to mention the modestly - of environment advocates will be tested on June 11, when the World Naked Bike Ride takes it all off in an effort to protest the domination of car culture worldwide. Aiming to "put a stop to the indecent exposure of the planet to cars and the pollution they create," the Naked Bike Ride encourages activists to get "as bare as they dare" - and as creative, holding body-painting and bike customising seminars in advance of the big sprint. Canadian cities hoping for some sunny weather include Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal; they'll be joined by nekkid bike seat straddlers the world over.
