Obviously, you can expect a lot of nudity at this Vancouver event (well, except for shoes) – but it’s for a good cause! The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is a positive protest against car culture, oil spills, and the development of pipelines in an effort to raise awareness around the urgency of climate action. And it’s back this summer.
The event’s organizers have planned inclusive, body-positive naked bike rides in cities around the globe, all of which have seen a ton of success.
Although the starting location is still TBA, the route is set to be around 8-10 km with easy elevation – so bikers of all abilities are encouraged to come out!
The event will take place on Saturday, June 25th, starting at noon. Rally your friends together and get ready to start riding at 3 pm, as per their event post on Facebook.
We suggest getting there a little early and applying a ton of sunblock (and body paint!) before the ride begins.
As always, come prepared with layers, close-toed shoes, a helmet, and water to re-hydrate. In terms of “how bare is bare,” it’s really up to you. Dress up in recycled Halloween costumes, rave wear, your fave swimsuit or bikini, or strip down to the ultimate ‘birthday suit.’
Nipple pasties and body art are welcome, as are normal clothes if you prefer to participate that way.
Mark your calendars, Vancouver! Enjoy the ride.
When: Saturday, June 25th
Where: TBA soon!
