World Naked Bike Ride 2011

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Bring your helmet, but leave the lycra at home. More than 100 nude and body painted cyclists will be riding to Parliament House on Spring street for Melbourne’s World Naked Bike Ride in March.

The naked riders will be celebrating the bicycle as an ethical and environmentally-friendly alternative to the car, highlighting the vulnerability of cyclists on Melbourne’s roads, and generally enjoying being naked and free in the sunshine.

We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians plus all the negative effects of oil, cars, war, consumerism and non-renewable energy.

The event will be held on Sunday 6th of March 2011. Organisers As Bare As You Dare advise that riders should meet at 3pm in the Edinburgh Gardens, North Fitzroy to be body painted before the ride.

For readers in Sydney, there will also be a Naked Bike Ride in Sydney in a couple of weeks (Saturday 19/March/2011).

I am planning on riding this year. Photos etc will be posted after the event.

Update: 150 riders showed their support for bike safety…or public nudity…or low-carbon emissions…or something….I’m not sure any more. I have posted a gallery of 50+ photos below…
