World Naked Bike Ride is coming to New York City again, on Saturday, the 8th of June, together with many other cities around northern hemisphere. I’ll repeat again, that it is a worldwide demonstration promoting cycling as an urban mode of transportation, as well as body acceptance. Riding naked is symbolic and effective way to draw attention to vulnerability of people against the traffic and pollution, and it also shows that being nude is not lewd. Please refer to my previous post why I think we really need this demonstration to be seen and heard in New York City particularly.
Even if you don’t consider yourself an environmental activist or are not sure about public nudity, consider another great aspect of WNBR – fun! I’ve participated in this event in Madrid and New York, as well as at Burning Man last year, and it’s always great fun!
Refer to the official wiki-page of WNBR-NYC and Facebook page for details.
Can New York make it as big as London? or at least Madrid?
Something is missing here!

WNBR NYC got some good [un]coverage at NY Daily News: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/naked-bike-ride-saturday-article-1.1365597
I’m quite disappointed that there is not a single positive comment except for mine! such a contrast to comments to the article where a top cop tells bikers to cover up in Brighton, UK
I’ll be at the LA ride this year – looking forward to it.
Have fun! I’m kind of surprised LA seems to be more progressive on this issue than New York.
