Description

Massive event promoting the end of oil and the beauty of people.  Held globally with dozens of cities participating.  Bare-as-you-dare with outfits ranging from body paint to fanciful costumes to beachwear. Chicago's seen over two thousand cyclists and skaters and more tour over a dozen miles of high visibility tourism and recreation areas. The ride's atmosphere is extremely joyful and transcendently fun.  Bicycles are the best solution to reducing America's oil addiction and improving public health and we're spreading that message.  Read full details at ChicagoNakedRide.org/about

Plan to arrive early! The RALLY & EXPO from 6 p.m. till we ride out is a great time to get pumped for the ride. There will be body painting, bike mechanics, the Glitter Guts Photobooth and Yoga at 6:15 and 6:30.

World Naked Bike Ride protests against the dependency on fossil fuels and promotes environmental justice for all.
– WNBR promotes consent culture and body-positivity.
– WNBR demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road to fight for bike awareness and safety.

Here are some slogans to SHOUT OUT THOSE TRUTHS:
Less Gas More Ass! Burns Fat Not Oil! Nude not crude! We Are Traffic! One Less Car!

Ride as a MASS, keeping together by staying behind the leader and with the group. Stay to the center to avoid bystanders. Consider hopping off your bike to stay in control.

Work with Bike Marshalls (in yellow vests!) for everyone's safety. Communicate what you need to those around you and support those who call out for help!
– DON'T get wasted.
– DON'T lag behind or split off.
– DON'T enter lanes of on-coming traffic.
– DON'T swarm cars or antagonize the public and cops.

If you run into trouble, National Lawyers Guild monitors will be on the ride. Look for the bright green baseball caps or call 773-309-1198.

Be prepared, stay alert, take care, help others.
LEAVE NO TRACE!!! PICK IT UP and PACK IT OUT!!!
HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE !!!
