Nude cyclists pedal for a cause

SCORES of nude cyclists have pedalled through Brazil's financial and industrial hub to call attention to the bare facts: Sao Paulo is dangerous for bikers, and short on dedicated bike lanes.

Some demonstrators did a Full Monty ride on Saturday while others opted for a relatively demure topless protest that was carried out in some other Brazilian cities, like Porto Alegre, and in Peru's capital, Lima.

"When we take it all off, we are showing just how vulnerable we are when we are not in a car," one demonstrator in this city of 11 million with just 67km of bikes-only lanes, told local media.

In Lima, protesters were demanding bike lanes and better traffic lighting.

They said they also were trying to raise awareness of cycling as a healthy and environmentally friendly mode of transport.--Source: Associated Press
