This weekend St. Louisans discarded society's rules (and their clothes) and hit the streets two wheels at a time, riding in the seventh annual World Naked Bike Ride.

The ride's compound mission, which advocates simultaneously for cyclist safety, positive body image and sustainable travel options, brings all sorts of interesting St. Louis characters out from the fringes: the eco-warriors, the sex-positive feminists, the experimenting college students, the die-hard cyclists, the creepers and so many more.

The ride's organizers encourage participants to bare as much as they dare. Many riders wore costumes or body paint that either strategically hid or daringly accentuated their naughtiest bits.

Daily RFT selected the best photos of riders stripping down and pedaling out. Here are our favorites:
