World Naked Bike Ride

I love riding my bike because the fast speeds and breeze on my skin make me feel so free and alive. Think of how free you'd feel if you weren't wearing any clothes.

World Naked Bike Rides happen all over the world, and no, it's not a way for nudists to get daily exercise. They are peaceful demonstrations whose main purpose is to bring awareness about the dangers and vulnerability faced by bikers on the road. It reminds automobile drivers that they need to share the street and pay more attention to their fellow two-wheelers. The Naked Bike Ride is also a protest against cars and the negative impact our dependency on oil-based fuels has on our planet. Riding naked brings attention to the act of bike riding and urges people to use environmentally friendly transportation instead.

If you're interested in finding a naked bike ride demonstration near you, check out this list of rides.

TammyO, I'm with you. I'm not quite comfortable with the thought of sitting on a bike seat with nothing between it and my lady parts! Maybe I'm a little OCD, but...germs... :-/

Aw, I'd go, but there are no rides close to my country :) I doubt my boyfriend would approve, though, haha.

LOL, telewyo, that is TOO true! Conceptually, kind of a neat thought, but it would be incredibly painful. I can't even imagine doing this if you were a guy...no support whatsoever. Plus I don't think I'd like riding a bike staring at a bunch of naked butts in front of me.

We had one of these in Burlington, VT where I live, and I loved the sayings people wrote on their backs. One said "I'm One Less Car," and another said,"Pay Attention to Me When I'm Wearing Clothes Too." I think it's important to raise awareness since so many bikers get hurt by cars. I guess being naked is an effective way to say "Hey, look at me and watch out!"

Talk about a biker's tan. Lol. I think this would be fun and as much as I'm a free spirit when it comes to clothes, I dunno about bike riding in the nude. Berkley and San Francisco are having rides. :)

Why does it seem like, in general, the people who are willing to get naked in public are usually the ones that other people would prefer it if they kept their clothes on? Good for them, it seems like they're all having fun so more power to them...but can I just say ewwwwww. Maybe I'm a prude but I just wouldn't want to see all of that coming down the street at me. :)
