Cyclists in Exeter are to ride through the city centre naked next month. The reason? The organisation putting the event together have published that it is to, “expose the need to rediscover non oil-dependent modes of transport.” Hundreds are expected to turn out for the unusual event, and despite local police being notified, no objections have been put forward. Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw said: “I welcome any event that draws attention to the benefits of cycling as long as it stays within the law and does not inconvenience others.” The ride is expected to be free of trouble with none of the major roads scheduled to be closed. The event will take place on June 11th 2011, with 100 names already signed up to take part.
