The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is an annual demonstration that draws attention to the absurdity of fossil fuel dependency and celebrates the potential of cycling and the human body. The overuse of the planets vanishing oil reserves causes pollution, global warming and leads to war, inequality and injustice. Many politicians want to subsidise the car industry and build more runways. They call such follies progress but this is progress towards disaster.
WNBR is an international movement, with rides taking place in over forty locations in the UK and around the world. Riding naked emphasises the vulnerability of cyclists on the road, at the same time as celebrating humanity in the face of mechanisation. If it seems a little crazy, think about the total madness of car culture and its inevitable results.
If you are worried about going nude on the day, dont panic as its fully clothing-optional bare as you dare, Full and partial nudity is encouraged, but not mandatory and if the route is too long for you, you can pull out at one of the rest points.
