The Naked Bike Ride...seriously?

So, I was out yesterday and bumped into a friend unexpectedly. We said our hellos - we haven't seen each other in a while. A few hours later, I check my phone and there is a text from the same friend saying (warning me) they bumped into a group of naked cyclists.
These cyclists were participating in a naked bike ride. I don't know what their reason is, whether it was for charity or sports or whether they were a group of nudists touring the city to cause uproar, but what I do know is, whatever the reason or cause for this 'naked bike ride', as they so call it, is simply unacceptable and plain disgusting.
This event has been taking place for a few years now (I think). Fortunately my eyes have always been shielded from them. Yesterday took a close turn though. As I was window shopping with a friend, they noticed for a split second that the naked cyclists were heading down the road we were walking on. Immediately I was warned and we both averted our gazes, so I did not see anything.
But what I did see were people around me, who quickly got their phones and cameras out to record the scene. Some were laughing. Some shouted. Some were surprised. Some looked amused. Everyone seemed to find it hilarious - apart from my friend and I.
And it got us thinking... this is broad daylight. What about the children out and about? It also got us thinking how nudity, for the one day, is suddenly acceptable... yet on other days, it is actually illegal. Double standards?

In the end, all I have to say is I'm disgusted. This is wrong, full stop.

So, what do you think of this subject ?

Ew. I do not want to see a bunch of nekkid ppl riding bikes! It's just inappropriate to me. And weird. What do they get out of riding through town stark naked?? I would be really angry if I had a child with me and they saw.

Yeah disgusting! We have a freak in our city who is famous because of this matter. I know him already from my school days. He is almost always naked and most on his bike. He got arrested several times but even that could not stop him.
I really think it's a sick addiction!

Thank you for your replies! =)
@ Amal: I have no idea what kind of mentalities these people have. To be able to drive stark naked on a busy street in the city on a weekend is just the time when just about anyone can catch these people by accident. It's plain wrong.

@bosnishmuslima: Eeek! =/ That's the problem. People like him know they will (eventually) get released and will not be arrested or be behind bars for long, so if they really wanted to do it, it's not like anything is stopping them. Something must be done!

@RuaNour: In Toronto too?? Goodness =| I cannot and will never be able to understand how this 'event' spread across the globe.

@ Smiley: I know, right!? No words for it!
