“Get on your bikes and ride!” Queen said it best. If you’re looking for a “fat-bottomed girl,” look no further than this year’s World Naked Bike Ride. You’ll also see a lot of other parts that you’ll probably want to erase from your short-term memory a la Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

On June 14, get ready to watch tons of bike riders driving stark naked around the Downtown Los Angeles/Echo Park neighborhoods, specifically Elysian Valley.

According to LAist, last year about 250 bikers cruised around sans clothing. And although it was a freeballin’ free-for-all in 2013, this year participants are being asked to RSVP to get the location and route.

It’s not just about the flash of flesh. These people are bike-riding for a reason.

Here’s a blurb from the site:

“World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is a global grassroots movement, connected only by our determination to all be naked and ride our bikes on WNBR Day. We ride in celebration and jubilation to deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world to the masses.”

So whether you’re biking in your birthday suit or just an appreciative onlooker, World Naked Bike Ride has you, ummm, covered?
