Annual nude bike ride turns heads in Mexico City

About a hundred naked cyclists, some sporting strategically-placed body paint, took to the streets of Mexico City on Saturday June 8 to protest the car culture in the teeming megalopolis and demand cyclist rights.

The city has made an effort to make the city more bike-friendly, launching a bike sharing program and installing bike lanes.

The main gripes of the procession were “rights for bikes,” the environment, and Mexico City’s chaotic streets.

There are an estimated 8 million vehicles clogging city streets on an average day, and it’s risky for bikers to compete with the city’s significant traffic.

The event in Mexico City is part of a global movement promoting greater use of bicycles in large cities and more sustainable transportation solutions.
