PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh is a bike-friendly town.

And, on Thursday night, some local cyclists were showing some biking love and a whole lot more.

It’s no big deal to see bicyclists in Pittsburgh, but this ride was definitely a head turner.

The Underwear Bike Ride dared hundreds of cyclists to almost bare it all as they made their way from Lawrenceville, to Market Square to the North Side.

“It’s always an amazing time and a way to feel good about myself,” said one participant.

It’s all about having fun, encouraging positive body image and bringing positive attention to Pittsburgh as a bike-friendly city.

“There’s always so much more awareness, and lanes, and city bikes and big strides for bicycles in Pittsburgh,” said another rider.

Wear what you dare, but a helmet is always recommended.
