The world naked bike ride has come around again and will be taking off from locations in Nimbin and Byron Bay this weekend.
Get your nude on in Byron
The Byron naked bike ride this Sunday, 8 March will be starting off from a new location this year at Gilmore Crescent, Sandhills Reserve, Byron Bay.
‘The World Naked Bike Ride encourages drivers to take notice of cyclists, and promotes cyclist safety,’ said one organiser Debra Conomy.
‘So if you haven’t already, it’s time to do a safety check on your bike and ensure you wear your helmet which is compulsory in NSW and remember to bring a big smile.
‘Whether you ride or spectate this is one of Byron’s fantastic annual events that gets the message out there “Can you see me now” by riding au natural.
‘This year, as always, our riders are encouraged to “Bare as you dare”.’
The aim of the World Naked Bike Ride is to highlight the vulnerability of cyclists to motorists, protest against transport powered by non sustainable forms of energy, and promote positive body image for all.
Bikers and participants are encouraged to gather at Gilmore Crescent in Byron Bay from 1pm for a ride across town at 3pm sharp .
Nimbin in the nude
Nimbin will also be holding a naked bike ride this Saturday, 7 March for the tenth year running.
The Nimbin riders will be gathering at the Nimbin Bush Theatre Cafe at 10am where people can strip off and get painted up for the ride. When everyone is ready they ride to the Main Street of Nimbin to share their road safety messages.
As it is Nimbin’s tenth birthday they are planning to enjoy a little birthday cake along the way.
