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 wnbr.canberra@gmail.com

    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.

“All naked people are hippies”?

A naked Adolph Hitler would be a flower power child? What are you smoking?

Then that’s all fair then isn’t it? They are as entitled to their opinion of me, as I am of them.

The difference being of course that I do not parade my (rather beautiful) naked body about in public.

Oh, John, “threatened”? Please… The day I feel threatened by any hippy Satan will go to work on ice skates.

Now if you’d said “nauseated”, you may have a point.

Illogic number one. All naked people are hippies. Illogic number two. People actually care what Pommy Bastard gives a fart about.

Ban them all.

You’re not a bowls player by any chance, are you, PB?

Like the ‘naked hippies’ give a fart about what you think of them.

Says you. I’m sure their lovers don’t think they’re ugly. I’m sure their kids don’t think they’re ugly. I’m sure their mothers don’t think they’re ugly. I’m sure I don’t think they’re ugly either.

Ban them all.

I’m sure the feeling is mutual.

You really feel that threatened by a bit of harmless fun?

That’s really sad.

I saw something like this on a documentary about naturalists… it looked like it could be painful and very strange. Count me out.

You’ve lost me PB. I think it would be a great sight.

Pommy bastard 2:39 pm 21 Jan 09

Because they are ugly granny.

captainwhorebags 2:38 pm 21 Jan 09

Wait, naked cycling exposes the negative effects of war and consumerism?

What did I miss?

Granny 2:30 pm 21 Jan 09

Why are their naked bodies ugly, PB?

Granny 2:29 pm 21 Jan 09

Well, I think it sounds kind of funny! *chuckle* But are you sure it’s legal?

Pommy bastard 2:27 pm 21 Jan 09

Arrest the buggers sharpish. The last thing Canberra needs is a whole bunch of naked hippies parading their ugly naked bodies about on bikes. The horror!!
