Cyclists try the wedding tackle to score their point

"...It's sort of an all-encompassing green, hippie, sun-loving attitude," said event organiser Heidi Hill.

Ms Hill said that in recent years the main message of the event has been taken over by "biketivists" — cycling activists — whose aim is to raise awareness about the dangers of cycling. As the message on one rider's back read: "Now you can bloody see us."

Cycling slogans dominated but a smattering spoke to different causes: "Fit not fat", "Burn fat, not oil" and the slightly puzzling "Wear wool. Wool real green".

After getting their gear off in Brunswick lane, the riders headed down Lygon Street, hit Parliament House, then swung around St Patrick's Cathedral and St Vincent's Hospital before heading back to Brunswick.

"A lot of it is about joy and fun and the sheer hystericalness of riding around naked," said Ms Hill."

Have just had the pleasure of watching again the documentary 'Naked Painted People' about Sydney's now defunct Sydney Body Art Ride. Spent yesterday working with SBAR's driving force Jake Lloyd Jones creating a collaborative artwork will be installed by myself and Jake at INDEX, St Peters, in the 'Collisions' group show, opening 12 March. 

'Collisions' and ARTcycle tours are part of Art Month Sydney. 

INDEX for details.

  1. Hmmm. I suppose I can see the charitable and meaningful side of doing this, but riding around Sydney with nothing between the bike seat and your tender bits except your skin really doesn't seem appealing to me.
