Facebook brings word that the much anticipated World Naked Bike Ride is going to run from the Glebe Park Gazebo to Commonwealth Park for what could be a pretty good party on Sunday 15 March.
- Come and cellebrate bodies and bikes while making a stance against oil usage, consumerism and the negative body image portrayed by the mass media.
We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians plus all the negative effects of oil, cars, war, consumerism and non-renewable energy.
Please note that nakedness is not compulsory. Feel free to wear as little or as much clothing as you like. But be prepared to see some flesh.
We hope to have a picnic by the lake to share a laugh and a sausage/vege burger after an amazing ride.
If you’re interested in helping out with any aspect of the planning or participation then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We would especially love to hear from you if you would like to get involved in organising the post-ride bbq, body painting, bike decorating, photography or anything else you think would make an awesome addition to the ride.
It’s going to be exciting.
UPDATED: Just a reminder to all the planned naked riders that this Sunday is the big day.
