A cyclist has been removed from a nude bicycle race after he became aroused by the sight of his fellow participants. The man became aroused when his fellow cyclists de-robed at the starting line of the World Naked Bike Ride in Kent this weekend.
Speaking to The Cambridge News, a witness said: “I heard gasps and I turned around – it was a horrible sight.”
“It’s fair to say he was overexcited and got aroused. It looked like he was enjoying the event a bit too much.
“One of the organisers went over to him and told him to put his trousers on while speaking on a walkie-talkie to police.
“The man looked sheepish when he was spoken to by the police,” the witness said.
The man put his trousers on before being escorted away by officers.
The nude cycle was organised to raise awareness of the dangers posed to cyclists by motorists.
Race organisers made a statement regarding the events on the World Naked Bike Ride Facebook page: "We do not accept this behaviour and he was dealt with and removed before the ride started."
Organisers sent out a warning prior to the race.
"The police have confirmed they WILL act on ANY inappropriate behaviour and we, the organisers will support that.
"If you are coming just to be a pain in the neck and to be the one to end this WNBR we'd rather you stayed at home."
