Protesters with a difference took to the streets of Mexico this weekend in an event where bicycles were essential but the dress code was clearly optional - because most of the participants were naked.
Hundreds of riders of all ages and sizes pedalled along in Guadalajara, Jalisco state, as part of World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR).
They were protesting on Saturday against aggressive drivers and gas emissions from cars.
Some were covered in full-body paint displaying pro-cyclist messages; various intimate piercings and tattoos were also on show, while others chose to protect their modesty.
According to WNBR, the dress code for the event is 'bare as you dare' and full or partial nudity is encouraged.
The annual event takes place in more than 70 cities across the world, and hopes to draw attention to the vulnerability of cyclists on the road, while protesting against the dangers of the car-obsessed culture in cities.
