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.
