Daily journalist cycles naked on old newspaper delivery bike

A regional daily journalist rode naked on an old newspaper delivery bike in support of an event for naturists.

Amir Razavi, reporter at Brighton daily The Argus, took to two wheels in his “birthday suit” for the city’s Naked Bike Ride.

The ride uses nakedness to raise awareness of the vulnerability of cyclists and the need for safer roads, and also aims to promote more ecological ways of travelling.

An Argus report of Amir’s adventure noted he was “careful to make sure he got nothing tangled in the chain”.

Amir, pictured, said: “It’s classic Brighton. Everyone should embrace it, it’s a bit of fun and you are doing no harm to anybody.”

Nick Sayers, who has helped organise the ride since 2006, told The Argus: “[The ride] is about protesting the vulnerability of cyclists on the roads, that’s the point of being naked.

“It’s about how our public spaces are designed for vehicles, not cyclists and pedestrians.”

Before the event, Steve Bax of event sponsor i360, said: “We’re expecting quite a few bums on seats.”

    I really wish I could unsee this, but, of course, I can’t.

    No offence to Amir but on first glance of the thumbnail image for this story I thought it was a topless lady!
