Cyclists in Cardiff have removed their clothes in an attempt to raise safety awareness and to promote its environmental qualities of cycling. some 80 riders turned out for the event, all keen to make a statement about cycling safety in the city. The nudity wasn’t compulsory, but many put on a brave face and bared all, hoping the visual shock would help draw some much wanted attention. It was reported that there was plenty of horn honking as the gang made their way around the inner most roads of Cardiff, and apparently the event was generally well received by the public. 32 year old participant Percy Clarke said, “It’s a great laugh and a chance to show that cycling is a better form of getting about – a non-polluting form.” Have you ever taken part in a cycling event like this?
