Byron Bay has been saved the shame of being unable to field a contingent in this coming weekend’s World Naked Bike Ride.
After a story published last month in Echonetdaily highlighted the plight of the town, which was unable to find a co-ordinator for the colourful annual event, someone has stepped forward. Well three, in fact.
Naomi, Natalie and Sophia (pictured L to R) are getting prepared for Sunday’s Byron leg, with a trial strip ’n’ paint.
Participants wishing to be body painted under the direction of the highly respected body art maestro Zen Joseph can meet on the Byron Railway station at 12 noon for a 2pm ride through town.
A $5 donation will go towards materials, all of which are non-toxic food-grade washable pigments.
Volunteers wanting to help with painting should contact Zen on 0402 288 178 or turn up on the day.
Nimbinites can also join in the World Naked Bike Ride on Saturday from 10am.
Please note that the date published for the Byron ride in the print edition of The Echo was wrong.
