When bike rides are naked, everyone wins. With an event like the World Naked Bike Ride
, thousands of cyclists can ride au naturel (or mostly so) through the city -- while wearing helmets, of course -- to raise awareness about cyclist rights, promote a positive body image and encourage reducing our dependence on oil. And other folks get to revel in their courage and toast the riders afterward. This year's twelve-mile, police-escorted World Naked Bike Ride in St. Louis starts and ends in the Grove (on Manchester Avenue, between South Sarah Street and Kentucky Avenue), and goes through Saint Louis University, downtown, Soulard, Benton Park and Shaw. The pre-party starts at 5 p.m., the free ride begins at 7 p.m., and the post-ride celebration begins at 8:30 p.m. Visit www.wnbrstl.org
