Cape Town Naked Bike Ride 2013 photos
Hundreds of semi-naked cyclists took part in the 2013 Cape Town Naked Bike Ride, to raise awareness for various causes, as well as to have a laugh and appreciate Cape Town's cycling set up. The ride began at Prestwich Memeorial and passed through Green Point and Sea Point, as well as various roads in Cape Town's city centre.
Messages being promoted by the cyclists included choosing bikes over cars, being more responsible with energy supplies such as oil, being more aware of cyclists on the road and not polluting the environment. Below are some photos, taken by Roy Barford.
The World Naked Bike Ride is a movement that began in 2004 and is now held in more than 50 cities around the world, mainly to promote human-powered transport.
It's definitely a weekend of cycling in Cape Town, with the 2013 Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour due to start early tomorrow morning.
