World Naked Bike Ride
Gettin' naked at the World Naked Bike Ride
The third annual event is one of more than 70 worldwide rides gathering bicyclists (both naked and not-so-much) to raise awareness of bicycles on the road.
The World Naked Bike Ride's New Orleans chapter meets 11 a.m. Saturday, June 11 — the ride begins and ends at Markey Park in Bywater.
The inaugural ride in 2009 and in 2010 hosted more than 300 riders in various states of dress — underwear, togas, body paint, strategically placed electrical tape, Speedos and bikinis, actual nudity. (Expect lots of dudes in a shorts/shirtless combo.) Their mission: "to peacefully expose the vulnerability of cyclists, humanity and nature in the face of cars, aggression, consumerism and non-renewable energy."
