BE PART OF THE WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE
Come AS BARE AS YOU DARE...
The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is a global event that takes place in more than 50 cities around the world. Saturday 8th March 2014 is the date that has been set for the Southern Hemisphere ride.
Since 2004, cities across the world have experienced the joy of the world's largest naked event that seeks to create environmental awareness through clean initiatives such as cycling. 2011 was the first successful Naked Bike Ride to take place in Cape Town, and was the first of its kind in the whole of Africa!
The event is a peaceful, imaginative and fun protest against oil dependency and car culture. It is a celebration of the bicycle and also a celebration of the power and individuality of the human body. Furthermore, it is symbolic of the vulnerability of cyclists in traffic and the Naked Bike Ride Team wish to create awareness of this fact. This naked cycle underpins massive global issues relating to the environment, global warming ad carbon emissions to name a few.
