The World Naked Bike Ride happened across the globe (but not in all places) over the weekend and it wouldn’t be a nude bike ride if it didn’t happen in Byron Bay.

Hundreds gathered to ride in the clothing-optional, helmet compulsory annual event through the streets of Byron Bay.

The aim of the ride is more about safety than nudity. The Ride encourages drivers to take notice of cyclists, and promotes cyclist safety.

As always, riders were encouraged to ‘Bare as you Dare’.

But one has to ask: If there was a nude bike ride and Jeff Dawson wasn’t there to take photos, did it really happen?
