According to Metro UK, hundreds of cyclists were spotted riding their bikes through the streets of Manchester yesterday. These people really were in the buff.
Why? Because they were all taking part in the 11th annual World N*ked Bike Ride.
Dozens of nude and partially-clothed bikers set off in the evening on Friday from All Saints Park in the university area of Oxford Road.
The dress code for the ride, which passed landmarks including St Peter’s Square, Manchester
Town Hall and travels along Deansgate, is ‘bare as you dare’ and full or partial nudity is encouraged.
And there is a meaning behind it all.
