Pity the seats

The Mayor of the Tasman District on the South Island of New Zealand has called for the cancellation of a clothing-optional bicycle race for reasons of safety: the riders won't be wearing, um, helmets.

Local police said they had no legal justification to intervene, which prompted Mayor John Hurley to say:

They have ridden bikes in the past down the road with no crash helmets, no nothing on and people say that's a double standard.

But is it a double offense?
