what is the World Naked Bike ride (on June 13, 2009)

WNBR is on! It's time to put a stop to the indecent exposure of people and the planet to cars and the pollution they create.

According to the United Nations, close to a million species of plants and animals could disappear from the face of the earth in the next 50 years as a result of greenhouse gasses being released primarily from motor vehicles.

Since 2004, cities across the world have experienced the joy of the world's largest naked event promoting cycling in the history of humanity.

You are invited to not only ride with us but also to help organize a WNBR event in the city of your choosing. More information. Visit our List of rides page for a list of participating cities.

World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is being organized and supported by many different groups. The groups are only connected by their determination to all be naked on their bikes on WNBR Day, riding in celebration, jubilation to deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world to the masses. We have many great reasons to be celebrating, with all the glory of naked two-wheel sanity. It's time to join hundreds of naked compatriots in a free, non-sexual, fun bike ride!

All are welcome! From the shy to the bold. Cyclists, rollerbladers, rollerskaters, skate boarders. All ages, sizes, and colors welcome. Bring your family and your co-workers!

What to wear? Do not fear! The World Naked Bike Ride dress code is "As Bare As You Dare"... How bare is that? How dare is that? It's all up to you. You decide what you are comfortable with. No one is excluded or discriminated against based on levels of clothing, bodypaint, or anything else for that matter!

Engage the public! We paint our bodies and decorate our bikes with political messages or beautiful designs to complement our forms. Please be creative and colorful in expressing yourself! Bodypainting, bike decorating, and other creative expression is strongly encouraged! See Body art and Art bike for more info.

We pass out flyers informing the public about our message. We use portable public address systems or raise our voices and chant in unison. Getting people to laugh and smile is a great way to connect and share ideas in a non-threatening way.

My bad. I made the Chicago Naked Ride group without checking first. Just didn't occur to me. Then I felt I really liked the intro here, and thought the groups could be distinct as world vs. Chicago. Didn't think about this being a Chicago site... but, broader velorelated issues are discussed here regularly. I personally in my local documents distinguish World, U.S., and Chicago. Tiers of WNBR Yahoo groups further distinguish North and South hemisphere rides, which happen on different dates. So maybe in this group we focus on WNBR rides outside Chicago or issues otherwise globally related to bike nudity? I realize that's a fine line to attempt in a bubbling public forum.

I'm a protector of naked peeps, but this is done with pants on. ;-)
