World Naked Bike Ride is comming up again.  Quite a few of the riders are naked but a lot wear thongs.

Here are some tips from the Vancover mob.
World Naked Bike Ride.  Naked Cyclists Take to the Streets!
Vancouver will experience the exposed joy and participate in the world's largest naked protest against oil dependency and car culture. It's time to stop indecent exposure to automobile emissions! Hundreds of cyclists will ride in various stages of undress -- reclaiming the streets as sexy, self-propelled citizens. Come join the naked bicycle people power!

The Vancouver ride starts Saturday, June 7, 2:00pm at Sunset Beach (corner of Beach and Bute).
Body painting and performances will take place before the ride. Arrive between 12 Noon and 2:00pm to catch some of the action and some of the paint!  A picnic following the ride will be hosted by NIFTY http://www.niftynude.org/

The ride, pre and post-ride activities are all free.
Please download, print and distribute posters and flyers for the ride (or make your own!)

Naked bike riding tips:
Prepare for riding rain or shine!
If it's sunny, put on sunscreen!
You do not have to be naked to join the ride.
Wear shoes!
If you're shy, we start the ride with some clothing on and then stop away from the crowds to get more bare!
Keep your clothes with you -- you never know when you may need them (like... after the ride).
Decorate your bike! Come with signs and funky hats! Cover your bike seat with fun fur!
Ride safely and stay together as a group.
Tell your friends! Spread the word!

I had considered going to the Chicago event but in the e-mails I received from the organizers made it sound like the event was more of a anti-gas, natural resources event than pro-thong or nudist event. 

In that case it was not for me.  Not that I am for wasting natural resources, but I'm not for protesting oil use.

I was in the DC ride last year. Wonderful experience. DC will not allow total nudity but, you can wear your tiniest g or baggy. I wore a www.bananapeelz.  We rode right though downtown Washington,DC on a Saturday afternoon. The police blocked the traffic for us. Total of abut 45 riders, 8 or so of us wore the legal minimum. We had a stop right outside the WhiteHouse. Lots of pictures but, flickr and youtube pulled most of them soon after the ride. The ride is not for the timid but, we had no problems.  Flickr has made more photos PRIVATE, AGAIN!!



I think these work. Took 4 trys

 Older Post from 2006 I am moveing here:

Mar 14, 2006  You have to hand it to John Palm. It certainly takes a lot of - uh, er, hmm, well, it just takes an awful lot of - G-string to ride down Bayshore Boulevard on a bicycle wearing nothing more than a court jester's hat and what looked like a hairnet covering his - oh, never mind. Then again, I didn't look that closely.

Sunday marked World Naked Bike Ride Day in Tampa, a festive occasion marked by people doing unspeakable things to bicycle seats.The obvious problem, though, with something called World Naked Bike Ride Day is that while in places like infidel Seattle people do all sorts of things in public in the nude, had Palm and his fellow buff bikers fully disrobed in Tampa to protest the war in Iraq, the dependence on foreign oil and just stuff in general, they would have been carted off to the hoosegow by the city's appointed genitalia gendarme, police Lt. G.P. McNamarra. 
McNamarra and her T-Back troops were fully prepared with hospital gowns to confront Palm and his birthday-suit bikers if they even thought about exposing themselves during their protest ride from Bayshore Patriots Park to MacDill Air Force Base, which was fully staffed to repel an assault of unpastified bare breasts should it have come to that. 

As it turned out, Sunday's protest was a relatively modest affair, or about as modest as something can get that looks like a convention of plumbers' cracks pedaling down Bayshore Boulevard.About 13 riders participated, including nine men in G-strings and four women who opted out of giving it up for free speech.Palm explained the need to goau naturelwas to symbolize "the vulnerability of the human body to war."It also could be argued a naked man on a bike could fall prey to that weapon of mass sterilization, the bicycle seat, or as it is otherwise known, a bris on wheels.  Palm agreed: "There are some obstacles; that's why it's good to wrap the seat with a soft cushion," which seemed a good time to move on to other questions because the subject of bike vasectomies had pretty well been exhausted.

All in all, Sunday's World Sort of Naked Bike Ride was in the classic tradition of American peaceful protest. Thomas Jefferson would have been proud, especially if more women had participated. Ben Franklin, too.Even Palm had to cover up."Tampa was more than gracious," Palm said of the police's help and cooperation. Well, it is Tampa, John, a city whose official seal ought to have a brass pole, silicone implants and lap.Still, the MacDill guys with guns, who had all the sense of humor of Grand Ayatollah Sistani, had to feel just a bit silly to turn out in such force at the Bayshore Boulevard gate complete with disgruntled German Shepherds.After all, about the only security risk Palm and his fellow mountain-bike mooners posed was a crime against aesthetics.

Let's face it: You could make an argument that although political protest is a wonderful, cherished, time-honored American tradition, doing it in any form of public nudity - unless it is being conducted by the Jessica Alba Look-A-Like Citizens Against the War - should be considered an act of good-taste treason.

 From 2007:  Brisbane Australia

Male cyclists taking part in a nude environmental protest ride in Brisbane next month will be urged to equip themselves with one vital item - a sock.
Not to keep a foot warm but, by police decree, to avoid offending public decency when the expected 15 riders take to Brisbane's bikeways on March 10.

As part of a World Naked Bike Ride, environmentalists in 56 cities across 16 countries will strip down in a coordinated protest.

Brisbane coordinator and naturist Dario Western said the riders would go "as bare as you dare'' and decorate themselves with body paint for the inaugural 20-minute ride along Coronation Drive between Toowong and Milton from 4pm (AEST).

Mr Western said he hoped the unusual protest would get their message across about the destruction of the natural environment.

"Nothing like that has been done in this city before,'' he said.

"I think a few people might be disgusted, I think a few more would be amused and I think a majority of them will just turn a blind eye.

"I think Queensland people tend to be a lot more conservative when it comes to matters such as non-sexual nakedness and environmental awareness.

"But as long as they take it in the spirit it's given, then I don't think there will be any problem.''

Even so, Indooroopilly police officer in charge, Acting Senior Sergeant Chris Peters said officers would meet with Mr Western to plan the event to ensure "everyone's interests are protected''.

He said women would be allowed to go topless but asked to wear knickers, while men would be encouraged to wear "a discretely placed sock''.

Mr Western said there were around 200 "active'' naturists in Brisbane, although many tended to be "hush, hush'' about their activities.

"They don't like their families or their mates to know about it,'' he said.

Rides will also take place in Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Sydney and Newcastle.

Thanks JM.
 Roger has been running the DC ride for several years. He didn't want to do it this year so, things are MUCH less organized.  I think the flickr links I left above still work. They are from last year. Roger is the TALL guy. I'm in quite a few. My bike is 35 years old, green banana seat, basket (had my clothes in it) not wearing a helmet. Half way though the ride I remembered my "N" hat(red). You can wear your tinyest g or baggie but, I avoid mesh or anything sheer.

CANNES, France (AFP) – Crowds hoping to glimpse the stars on the Cannes festival's red carpet got an eye-popping surprise Saturday as a team of nude Belgian cyclists paraded down the Riviera seafront.

Director Felix van Groeningen and four of his actors straddled bicycles and careened down the croisette and back under warm spring sunshine, in a remake of a scene from "La Merditude des Choses" (The Misfortunates).

The comedy, which tells the story of a family of drunkard brothers, seen through a teenagers' eyes, premiered Saturday at the Directors' Fortnight, one of two high-profile sidebars to the main Cannes film festival.

On June 13 the 4th annual Naked Bike Ride rides again here in Washington, DC!  This ride is one of dozens of rides around the world in which thousands of riders ride naked to protest dependency on oil and the unsafe conditions bicyclist face in a car centered society and to promote bicycles as a viable form of transportation.  The ride is open to all interested adults and there is no registration required, no fee, and no dress code. Riders are asked to conform to the DC laws, which means stopping just short of the "full Monty" - so bring your favorite thong!  This is our 4th annual ride and we have had no problem in the past and don't expect any this year.  It is a easy and fun ride.The ride leaves Franklin Park at 3:00.  Questions may be sent to naturerunner@yahoo.com.

For young guys in a sock it's an adventure, youth experimenting and having fun, kind of neat, actually, I'll give them a pass.  Aren't old guys supposed to know better, supposed to have grown out of it?  Seems weird.  A protest?  More likely just an excuse to get naked in public.

I see the same dynamic at Bay-to-Breakers 12k road race in San Francisco.  Young guys and gals racing naked are a delight, seeing them celebrate their freedom.  The old folks I wonder about, what's their problem?  Got to admit I'd love to do it, too, but I'm old, I should know better, and don't want to look like a jerk.  Probably never will.

The DC ride is only a hour long. We take photos at the beginning as well as 2 stops along the way, the US Capital and the White House. While it is VERY public, we aren't in any 1 place long enough to cause much grief. Like the Federal Protective Service officer told me (from his black SUV). "You guys give new meaning to 'having balls'" The area where we stop next to the White House is used by protesters all the time. Part of purpose of the ride is that bikers are "exposed" to cars, trucks etc. While a helmet helps, no amount of clothing does much good in a wreck with a vehicle. I wouldn't do this every week. There is group(Critical Mass) that does rides in DC on a regular basis. I understand some of them ride "bare" in warm weather.

Guess that clinches it -- you're not naked if you're painted.  The shot of the smooth guy in gray marble all over was great, like a greek statue, except he chose a skate board rather than a pedastal.  They used to try to stop the painted nudes, guess they've stopped trying.  The spectators seem to love it.  Not for the shy, though, especially with so many unpainted faces.  "Look Ma, I'm on YouTube!"

Just hometown folks having fun, seizing the chance to get naked and ride around town smiling and waving to their neighbors.  A little weak on the protest messages, but hey, they're demonstrating their vulnerability pretty effectively.  Would love to join them next year, but four hours each way in an SUV?   Defeats the message about dependence on fossil fuel, even smacks of Al Gore flying around the world in his private jet lecturing all us sinners how we're causing global warming.  Takes guts, but I'm game, maybe plan a vacation around it.

I saw this today. Video is from the Philly naked bike ride a few days ago. The best part is the running commentary from the family in front. They're 30s with a little girl maybe 6. Another family is next to them with another girl maybe 7. Trust me these folks had NO idea this was going to happen. Neither family seems worried about their daughters seeing all these naked men (HUNDREDS) and quite a few nude or topless women. The girls are jumping and pointing (bodypaint and crazy costumes). They saw more bare butts (and eveything else) then some people see in a life time.  95% is from the father, not all positve but,his last comment "That was weird", sure beats, they should all be shot.
 Knowing, youtube, this video may disapear (WAY too many bare penises).

I've only missed one of the Toronto World Naked Bike Rides.  We've had various numbers of participants from 10 to just over 100.  We've had police escort which helps with left turns in city traffic.  I always wear a helmet, shoes and gloves, so technically, you couldn't say I was naked, but I personally, don't wear a thong.

Search the World Naked Bike Ride online and join a ride near you this June 11, 2011.

All so exciting! It's only a week to go to World Naked Bike Ride weekend.

I'll be at Brighton on 12/06/2011 for certain and very probably London Hyde Park on 11/06/2011.

PM me if you want to make sure you have a friendly face there. I'll be wearing a thong for most of the stuff in public although I'll go naked for the naked beach party on Brighton naturist beach.

It's going to be a fun and wonderful event, especially if the weather is like today.

Decisions to make:
Thong colour: probably the red Joe Snyder again.
Bike: Race or Hybrid with panniers. Possibly the slower latter.

Here's my picture from last year:

 Portlanders are expected to gather Saturday night for the World Naked Bike Ride.The ride starts at 10 p.m., but riders are asked to meet at the corner of Southwest Water Avenue and Salmon Street at 9 p.m.

Portland police ask that riders wear a helmet and shoes to avoid potential injuries.It is legal to be naked in public in Oregon as long as the nude person isn't performing a sexual act or trying to arouse anyone.

Extra Portland police will be stationed along the route to keep the event safe and guide traffic.Event organizers estimated the number of participants last year to be 13,000 people.

  • 11 AM: Gather. Same earlier time as last year to take advantage of the midday warmth during the ride. Undress. Apply sunscreen. Group consensus on route details. Bike checkout & attaching signs / body painting & slogans. For June plan to paint your body at home or bring supplies. (Lip stick works in a pinch as long as you like shades of red.)
  • Noon: Ride starts (approx). Depending on the mood of the group and the amount of media coverage we are getting the ride may start a bit after noon.
  • 4 pm (approx): Main ride finishes.
  • Skaters are welcome!

The weather forecast is “sunny, highs in the 50s to upper 60s. West winds 5 to 15 mph.” Could be worse.

In San Francisco nudity is not illegal, but if you do want to sit down somewhere, be sure to bring a towel to sit on.
