Nude Bicycling: World Naked Bike Ride 2007

Friday, April 06, 2007

The World Naked Bike Ride event claims to be "the worlds largest naked protest against oil dependency and car culture in the history of humanity." The mission is to "stop indecent exposure to automobile emissions and to celebrate the power and individuality of our bodies! Naked Bicycle People Power!" First introduced in 2004, plans for 2007 are taking shape.

The World Naked Bike Ride event has received plenty of media coverage worldwide in 2006 as can be seen on this list. The event has been mentioned before on Nudist Travel Guide Blog and Tom Mulhall of Terra Cotta Inn has some posts on it too.

The event is not specifically a social nudism event, but may be of interest to nudists who are not afraid to be out in front of the picture taking public for a cause. The cause is centered on the promotion of cycling. In doing so, the event promotes environment awareness, body image acceptance, nude acceptance, and community building.

Washington D.C. has a big event planned for June 9 2007. The group has a permit for the event and everything is going smoothly with their plan "To ride through the United States capital to promote the use of alternatives to oil".

Though a final Seattle date is still being worked out, Miami had 2 rides planned this year. One was for March and the second Miami event is supposed to happen June 9.

London and Paris are also scheduled for June 9th and Manchester, England for June 8th. Here's video from a past London event:
