It’s almost that time of the year again! The annual World Naked Bike Ride is coming back to Toronto and will be taking place this spring.
The only time in the city where you’ll see a bunch of naked people cruising around Toronto on their bikes – on June 10, 2023.
According to organizers, the annual World Naked Bike Ride is a “global protest against the over usage of oil and urban pollution, promoting greater cycling safety on our roads, and encouraging body freedom for everyone.”
Riders are encouraged to join the legal ride, which is free of charge and there’s no registration.
If you want to go for the ride but want to wear clothes, that is allowed. If you’re renting a bike, please make sure to cover the seat – not just for everyone but for yourself too.

Here’s how it’ll work. All riders will meet at Coronation Park for 1:00 PM, but if there are issues, Inukshuk Park will be the next meet-up spot, and lastly the CNE Prince’s Gates, according to organizers.
“We have included new stops this year on top of Sugar Beach and HTO Beach,” said organizers.
“We are going to the CN Tower. We will bypass the ferry docks and go there. From there we will head back to Queen’s Quay and continue to Sugar Beach, and then to Coronation Park. Please get dressed after the ride. We don’t want issues with the police.”
The World Naked Bike Ride originated in Vancouver, and now occurs in over 80 cities worldwide.
