Man Rides Bicycle on Sunderland Bridge Completely Naked, Because Why Not

When you think of cycling attire, what are the first items of clothing that pop into your mind? We’d wager a safety helmet and cycling gloves are at the top of the list.

The same goes for this man, the star of the latest video to make waves online. The difference is that his list didn’t include anything else, so he went cycling on a public road butt naked.

The video was shot on the Northern Spire Bridge in Sunderland, the UK, by some guy named Jamie Cockburn, the Daily Mail writes. Try not to laugh at the hilarious coincidence of having a dude named Cockburn lay eyes on a stark naked male cyclist.

You can hear him in the video, expressing his shock and amazement that what looks like an elderly gentleman stepped out in the nude, to go cycling on the road. Cars are also honking him, but he doesn’t seem to mind it all that much.

The bridge had only opened on August 28 which is the first bridge to be built on the River Wear in more than 40 years,” the Mail says. “At 105m, the bridge's central pylon is the tallest structure in the North East and it's estimated that 27,000 vehicles will pass beneath it every day.”

So maybe the man wanted to celebrate the opening of the bridge in a way that he knew would make headlines? If so, mission accomplished. Or maybe he was feeling himself that day and thought clothes would do him an injustice? Or maybe he lost some kind of dare with his lady wife?

The questions are endless and we may never get an answer to them. For what it’s worth, kudos to the gentleman for thinking of his safety by wearing protective gear. At least his head will be protected in case of a fall or accident.
