(happily the camera did not go in for any close ups)

Bellingham’s fifth annual Naked Bike Ride is planned for Friday, June 7, with a colorful mix of serious protest, body paint, fun, and skimpy to no clothing.

Nude bike rides are already established community events in San Francisco and the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle. The Bellingham ride is part of a worldwide movement that began nine years ago and now has events in more than 70 cities and some 20 countries.

Three fully clothed police officers on bikes plan to accompany the ride.
