BERLIN, GERMANY - JUNE 21: Bicycles available for rent through the Nextbike app stand in the city center on June 21, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. A number of companies have plunged into the market for sharing Berlin's urban transport, including Car2Go, Flinkster and DriveNow for cars, Coup and Emmy for electric scooters and Lidl-Bike, Call A Bike and Nextbike for bicycles. All of the services rely on smartphone apps that reserve the rental, help locate the vehicle and process billing and payments. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)

Hundreds of buck naked, or barely clothed, cyclists pedaled through New Orleans French Quarter in this year’s “Bare as you Dare” event.

The 13th annual ride Saturday marked a comeback after taking a year off because of the COVID pandemic. Many onlookers cheered and seemed mostly amused by the free-spirited bicyclists, who happily rode on the humid and 90 degree day.

The event means to raise awareness of bicycle safety, and the rider’s nakedness shows how vulnerable people are on bikes. The turnout was larger than most years.
