Naked cyclist movement spreads to Chile
(AFP)
SANTIAGO — Seven bicyclists have been arrested for "moral offenses" as Chile saw its first edition of the World Naked Bike Ride, which was taking place in cities around the world. The cyclists began their route fully clothed in a residential neighborhood and stripped off much of their clothing during the ride to arrive at the Plaza Italia either partially or completely nude. The ride in Santiago was part of the World Naked Bike Ride, a global event created in 2004 to protest oil dependency and call attention to cyclist rights. Protesters in Chile hoped to raise awareness about their rights to safe travel in the streets of the Chilean capital, where cycling has gained popularity in recent years. Santiago is one of the most polluted cities in Latin America.
