The battle between Williamsburg bicyclists and Williamsburg Jews over a Bedford Avenue bike lane will take a turn for the naked this weekend when at least 50 protesters pedal down the street with no clothes. The protest is a response to complaints from some Orthodox Jews about cyclists who bare too much skin and comes a few weeks after the city painted over a bike lane on Bedford. Some guerrilla bicyclists (not gorilla bicyclists, unfortunately) repainted the lane, which the city quickly covered again, leaving the bicyclists with only one logical course of action — riding naked in sub-freezing temperatures.
