The organizers arrive ready to paint.

From Tower Grove Park to the Atomic Cowboy in the Grove, cyclists rode as bare as they dared during the St. Louis version of the World Naked Bike Ride. Started to protest the world's dependency on oil and to promote cycling, the bike ride drew various riders in various states of undress. Some photos are potentially NSFW (Not Safe For Work).
