It’s on. The World Naked Bike Ride is coming to Canberra

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

    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.

SO did anyone attend this either as a participant or a spectator? Where are the photos you promised, PB?

If it’s illegal to show body parts in public, then how about we ban breast feeding (again). I plan to be naked, not for the sake of being naked (that’s for sure!), but to raise awareness of some much bigger issues.

Nothing to do with hippies people, it’s about YOUR children — lycra-clad or not.

On the other hand, we could simply not give a fark about anything outside our own backyard (and car trip to work) and diss those who are brave enough to risk themselves for the greater good… it should be an easy decision for the thinking person, but perhaps not so for the cynical bigoted small-minded people of the world. I could be wrong.

So, if you are having trouble deciding what camp you sit in on this one, well, you are hopefully at least smart enough to work out what kind of human you might be and therefore what serious questions you need to ask yourself.
