Peter Keating, a spokesman for the event, said 60 riders participated Saturday in Madison’s third annual Naked Bike Ride, which protests the use of petroleum products and celebrates the beauty of the human body, The Wisconsin State Journal, Madison, reported Monday.
Keating said the event’s route was kept secret until the ride itself “for security reasons.”
The spokesman said he was “a little disappointed” with the number of people participating, but he said some came from as far away as Cleveland and Minnesota.
“It was a small but spirited crowd,” Keating said.
