I was passed this awesome collection of photos by my friend J-Town in Chicago. (Yes, that is most definitely her real name.)

These were take at the World Naked Bike Ride, Chicago throw down. Everyone should already know that Chicago has one of the largest (and best) bike cultures in the United States. I would say the world, but the U.S. unfortunately has little on European bike culture. I swear the Germans and Dutch give birth on bikes.

If that doesn’t make you want to get on a bike, no naked men ever will.

These pictures are all taken by Sam Gove, and you can scope the full album here, and his blog here.
