World Naked Bike Ride


Naked Cyclists Take to the Streets!

On Saturday, June 9th, 2007, cities around the world will experience the exposed joy of the world's largest naked protest against oil dependency and car culture. It's time to stop indecent exposure to automobile emissions! Hundreds of cyclists will ride in various stages of undress, reclaiming the streets as sexy, self-propelled citizens. Raw Naked Bicycle People Power!

The Vancouver ride starts Saturday, June 9, 1:00pm at Sunset Beach (corner of Beach and Bute).

Body painting and performances will take place before the ride, arrive between 11:00am and 1:00pm to catch some of the action and some of the paint! A picnic following the ride will be hosted by NIFTY.


Naked Bike Riding Tips

. Prepare for riding rain or shine!
. We often start the ride with some clothing on and then stop away from the crowds to get bare!
. You do not have to be naked to join the ride.
. Wear shoes!
. Keep your clothes with you -- you never know when you may need them (like... after the ride.)
. Decorate your bike! Come with signs and funky hats! Cover your bike seat with fun fur.
. Ride safely and stay together as a group.
. Tell your friends! Spread the word!
