Cyclists bare all to raise safety awareness
Cyclists rode naked through Canterbury, Brighton, London and Southampton recently as part of a global event to show how vulnerable cyclists are on the road (BBC News).
The cyclists were taking part in the World Naked Bike Ride, a six-mile (10km) ride designed to help make cycling safer and the preferred option for short journeys. Traffic reportedly came to a standstill in Mexico City as onlookers stared in amazement.
Barry Freeman, co-organiser of the Canterbury ride, said: "132 cyclists were killed last year and the most common excuse is, ‘I'm sorry, I didn't see him or her', when they're wearing fluorescent jackets.
"Basically, we're saying we're naked, we're vulnerable, we've got no protection, and you see us when we're naked - please see us when we're wearing high visibility clothing.”
