The 7th Naked Bike Ride took place in Cape Town on Saturday as part of a global movement that certainly raises a few eyebrows but also the benefits of a safer, cleaner, car-free society.

The bike ride, which takes place annually at different times in the Southern and Northern hemispheres, is a free clothing-optional event that weirdly enough is not meant to be about nudity.

While it started with a rather small following in 1999, more than 400 or so daring cyclists take part in order to highlight how important it is to take care of the planet we call home.

Those who do ride along the Sea Point promenade and through the Cape Town City centre are imaginative and creative in their appearance, centred on the au natural birthday suite and human-powered transport of course.

While some might have been shocked and horrified to be confronted with juggling bits, everything from bicycles, scooters, skateboards and inline skates could also be seen on the day – in the name of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world.

Take a look at those who dared to go bare – all we can say is well done folks, well done!

The World Naked Bike Ride in Australia took place last weekend, while the Northern Hemisphere event is set to take place in on Saturday 11 June 2016.
