30 photos of naked people riding bikes around Toronto
The World Naked Bike Ride rolled through Toronto on Saturday, bringing with it a hefty dose of skin and the usual curious glances from those who encountered the caravan of nudists. Officially positioned as a protest against oil dependency, the event — which takes place in cities around the world — is also meant to foster positive body images. I mean how can you not admire the balls on these people putting themselves out there like that? It's genuinely refreshing — no puns required.
The group of 100+ cyclists gathered at Coronation Park before winding downtown to Yonge and Dundas, hitting up Queen West and Yorkville along the way. It was a gorgeous day for a clothes-free ride, and the joviality of the group was contagious. On the flip side, there were a few BIXI bikes under naked bums, so cue the chorus of "ewwwws" now.
