On 16th March 2019, the World Naked Bike Ride returns to Melbourne, bigger and better than ever!!!
The World Naked Bike Ride is an annual, worldwide bike ride.
Through our naked and highly visible presence on the streets of Melbourne, we aim to:-
* Highlight the vulnerability of cyclists to motorists who appear blind to our presence
* Protest against car culture
* Promote positive body image for all
The naked aspect of our ride provides a unique opportunity to promote our causes to the general public, and the media who are always keen to cover the ride.
Our naked riders are as vulnerable as the planet that we live on due to the over reliance on cars. We set an example by choosing an environmentally friendly transport choice. Ditch your car, grab a bike, and do your health and the earth a big favour.
And why is it that cyclists continue to be killed and injured on our roads, by car drivers who claim not to be able to see bicycles. The excuses by some motorists that they fail to see cyclists are totally unacceptable.
IF I RIDE NAKED, CAN YOU SEE ME NOW?
The World Naked Bike Ride encourages drivers to take notice of cyclists, and promotes cyclist safety.
Our society has created a model of the body beautiful, which is reinforced constantly through advertising and the media. Many people, both male and female, struggle with the perceived imperfections of their bodies. The same people avoid showing their bodies due to fear of criticism or rejection. The World Naked Bike Ride is a totally inclusive event. You don't need to dress up for this event, just come as you are.
Many people also, incorrectly, seem to only associate the naked body with sex. We aim to de-sexualise nudity and celebrate the human body, in all its shapes and sizes.
NUDE IS NOT RUDE
We welcome all, male and female, and all ages to the World Naked Bike Ride Melbourne 2019. Please join us on Saturday, 16th March 2019 for our 14th Annual ride, the biggest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere.
It's also a fun and free event!
