World Naked Bike Ride #12!!! (since 2004). Yearly. Gathering after 6p, departs before sunset.
Massive bike and skate event celebrating the end of the oil era, and promoting positive body image. Held globally with dozens of cities participating, and Chicago routinely setting U.S. turnout records.
This is a bare-as-you-dare event with outfits ranging from body paint to fanciful costumes to beach-wear. Chicago rallies many hundreds of cyclists and numerous skaters covering over a dozen miles of high visibility city tourism and recreation areas. The ride's atmosphere is extremely joyful and transcendently fun.
Bicycles constitute the best solution to reducing America's petroleum addiction and improving public health. With gas prices skyrocketing and obesity an epidemic, our messages have become truisms.

Chicago's 12th Annual World Naked Bike Ride departs today at 8pm!

Check-In begins after 6pm at Mary Bartelme Park, 909 W Adams, at Peoria.

This is not the starting point of the ride (keep your clothes on), you will be told where to go from there.

If you show up without a bike, skateboard, inline skates, or some other HUMAN POWERED TRANSPORT you cannot join.

Please do not show up at the last minute (8pm), many people get left behind doing that each year.

We ride rain or shine, so BE PREPARED for ANYTHING.

Travel Tips:
There is no parking near the starting location, so consider biking in or utilizing the CTA's bike and ride, you can put your bike on a bus or train.

Blue Line: Grand stop is very close, so is the Halsted UIC stop

Green Line: Morgan St stop is perfect

Halsted and Ashland buses are a good option.

Weather permitting we may grill after. So bring something, or you can pickup later.
