Cyclists from cities around the world will take part in the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) this Saturday, according to the organization’s website. The short-distance, clothing-optional event is held to promote environmentally friendly transportation and draw awareness to the needs and safety of urban cyclists.

“It's time to put a stop to the indecent exposure of people and the planet to cars and the pollution they create,” reads one of WNBR’s slogans. “We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the vulnerability faced by cyclists and pedestrians on our streets as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy.”

Cities with scheduled rides for June 13th include Vancouver, Edmonton, Barcelona, New Orleans, Edinburgh, London, and Chicago.
