There were bare naked bikers all over St. Louis this weekend. The cyclists decided to go au natural to protest sticker shop at the gas pump. They were also upset over our dependence on oil.

What that has to do with nudity is beyond me.

The demonstration is called, "The World Naked Bike Ride." They've been staging the 10-mile protest in 70 cities since 2004.

Police were on hand in the Show-Me State just in case folks showed a bit too much. For the most part, the cyclists wore pasties, thongs and stragically placed loin cloths. However, about 100 decided to throw caution to the wind and mount their bikes in the buff.

Like frying bacon, I'm not sure riding a bicycle is something you want to do in the nude -- what with all those spokes.
