Saturday afternoon over 300 bike riders gathered Downtown for the 8th annual World Naked Bike Ride in Los Angeles, spreading the cause of body-positivity, human-powered transport, living environmentally-responsible, and just general good vibes. Despite the name of the event, it's only "nudity-optional" and participants dressed up or down as they chose, donning body paint, costumes, and, wisely, hats and helmets.

There were reports of a police chase on the route of the WNBR that delayed the its start, but the event went off without a hitch and the riders cruised through Downtown for over two hours and flaunted their stuff. Unfortunately over in New York, two riders were arrested for "public lewdness." Go figure.
