Cyclists in Mexico City rode through the streets naked on Saturday to mark the World Naked Bike Ride.
The daring cyclists demand more respect from drivers on the road and also want to raise awareness on environmental and health issues.
The riders, not all of whom were nude, said showing their naked bodies was a way to show drivers the fragility of the human body.
The World Naked Bike Ride movement began on June 12, 2004, in Vancouver, Canada, and has been held every year in 29 cities around the world since then.
