Last weekend the World Naked Bike Ride took place in 50 cities around the globe. Thousands of naked people took to their bikes to protest against car culture and to raise awareness of cycling as an environmentally friendly option. Thousands more lined the streets to grab a sneak peek at the spectacle.
Pictures of naked bodies continue to grace our Facebook and Twitter feeds this week. More interesting though has been the noticeable divide in opinion about the protest. You have those who are celebrating the liberation of cycling naked, those who are taking part because they are truly behind the cause, those who simply turned out to perve on naked people, those who turned out to mock and of course a whole host of people that were utterly appalled by the protest.
Evidence of these varying attitudes has graced comments sections and newsfeeds over the past week. We are eager to know where the readers of TWC stand in this debate?
In the meantime, here is a snapshot of the varying opinions across the web…
