Police were forced to intervene at a naked cycling event in Canterbury, UK, after it was reported that one cyclist was aroused. Mirror explains one witness’s account of the incident, “Everyone was taking their clothes off to get ready for the ride. I heard gasps and I turned around – it was a horrible sight…It’s fair to say he was overexcited and got aroused. It looked like he was enjoying the event a bit too much.” One organizer of the event told the man in question to put his pants on, then called the police who removed the offender from the location.
The naked rides take place in different cities around the world in an effort to highlight the dangers that cyclists face from cars. Participants are allowed to cycle ‘as bare as you dare’ but there are strict rules which they must adhere to. The rules state that skaters or runners are not allowed and riders cannot wear face masks. Under 16’s are allowed to participate but they must be accompanied by an adult.
