2012: World Naked Bike Ride, Rides Again – Weekly Vice

It’s that time a year again, when people around the world trade four wheels for two, and clothing is optional at best.

The World Naked Bike Ride commenced Saturday, June 9th in dozens of cities around the world – gracing downtown streets with decorative bikes, body paint and more nudity than you could shake a bicycle chain at.

Several naked bike ride events take place each year during the summer months, however, the World Naked Bike Ride is by far the largest and best organized event of them all.

The event boasts organized bike rides in 70 cities located in 20 different countries. Northern hemisphere cities were scheduled for June 9th while southern hemisphere countries will hold their event in March, 2013.

In the United States, organizers claim up to 20 cities participated in the bike ride – with attendance varying from a few dozen riders in some cities to hundreds of riders in other larger cities like San Francisco and Chicago.

So what’s the goal of all this nudity? The World Naked Bike Ride’s main website describes it this way:’

“We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclist and pedestrians as well as the negative consequences we all face due to dependence on oil, and other forms of non-renewable energy.”

Although the event does not require complete nudity – participants are encouraged to strip down as much as possible and decorate their bodies with colors that draw attention.

Participants are also encouraged to decorate their bikes, film videos and create promotional art of various kinds.
