The World Naked Bike Ride is almost upon us. Every year in June, around 10,000 people take to the streets of Portland on their bikes -- and without their clothes. The event organizers describe it as a ride that "highlights the vulnerability of cyclists everywhere and decries society’s dependence on pollution-based transport. It’s also a lot of fun and it’s free for all!" The ride has a lot of support among Portlanders, evidenced by the large number of participants and spectators at the annual event. But critics say that the naked ride is obscene and just too weird -- even for Portland. What do you think?

Supporters credit the ride with bringing attention to the issues around fossil fuel use and climate change -- as well as normalizing nudity and the human body.

Many critics object to the ride because they are concerned about the possibility that children might see naked adults in public.

But most of the city seems to find it harmlessly amusing (if a little awkward to talk about with your mom).
