SOUTH SIDE (KDKA) – A group of bike riders caused a bit of a stir on the South Side last night.

It was the second “Pittsburgh Underwear Bike Ride” of the summer.

The event’s Facebook page said it’s about, “having fun and promoting a positive self-body image.”

The group even received a police escort.

However, according to emergency dispatchers, some people were riding in the nude along East Carson Street.

It’s not clear if they were part of the main group, or if there were any arrests.

Thursday night’s event was a fundraiser for a bike rider who was seriously hurt in a hit-and-run crash in May.

He was struck on Liberty Avenue in Lawrenceville while riding with friends.

The organizers of last night’s ride said the victim was in critical condition for a while, but is now making progress in his recovery.
