‘Cheeky’ ride attracts interest

THINGS don’t get any more cheekier in Byron Bay than a bunch of naked people riding pushbikes – certainly when you are behind them.

And there were plenty of smiles from onlookers as more than 40 cyclists taking part in last Saturday’s World Naked Bike Ride rode through the town.

With many carrying body painted slogans on their backs – and all wearing helmets - the cyclists started their ride from the platform at the railway station, eventually riding down Jonson Street.

The town was one of a handful of locations across Australia which hosted a ride which promoted the use of pedal power as a way of improving fitness, reducing carbon footprints and solving parking problems.

One of the organisers said everyone had fun, were well-behaved with a ‘splendid’ response from the public.

“The police were fantastic and really helped the event to be such a success,” he said.
