One way to promote bike riding

These bike riders didn't have to worry about chaffing from their shorts.

They weren't wearing any shorts -- or anything else.

More than 40 cyclists rode naked through the streets of Vermont's capital city over the weekend.

While they weren't wearing tops, or bottoms, some did have on their helmets.

There's no law against public nudity in Vermont.

And it wasn't just the young and the firm taking part.

Seventy-seven-year-old Ross Stevenson was one of the naked riders.

But his wife of 55 years, Nancy, tells The Times Argus newspaper, she's no nudist.

The nothing-to-hide ride was part of the World Naked Bike Ride, designed to promote bikes as an alternative to cars.
