Report from Toronto's World Naked Bike Ride Event

Paul Rapoport writes:
The stated aim of the ride is to protest "indecent exposure to cars" and oil dependency. For this event, the naked body seemed not a provocation but simply an antithesis au naturel to concrete and cars. Although naked may also imply vulnerable, we felt strong and determined in our large, merry horde...My strongest memory of the ride is a naked young woman cycling to the front of our group to hold the traffic at a busy intersection. She revealed complete calm and confidence. I saw no fainting spells or car accidents.
