The annual World Naked Bike Ride made its way through downtown Los Angeles again, and some riders showed us all they had.The L.A. Times says participants all met at the corner of Baker and Spring Streets on Saturday afternoon, and went on a figure-8 route that went through Echo Park and along the L.A. River. Participants were all in various states of undress, as the motto reads, "Be as bare as you dare!"

The LAPD has typically tolerated the event and FOX 11 says on cruiser was even on hand to direct the flow of traffic. Hopefully it went free and easy.
