Every June, dozens of nude riders from different cities and countries take to the French Quarter of New Orleans for the annual World Naked Bike Ride. This fun extravaganza is held to raise the awareness of bicycling as well as to declare the beauty of the human body, both individual and vulnerable. The overall aim is the promotion of cycling as clean and safe means of transportation versus motorized vehicles along with their negative impact on the environment we live in, and global oil dependency.
Participants aren't required to ride only bikes. It could be anything ranging from rollerbladers to skateboarders, and even joggers, but obviously not a motorized car. Don't feel discouraged if you're not willing to undress completely, as the motto clearly states—"as bare as you dare". The ride is equally appropriate and comfortable for the shy and bold. Also, feel free to add some special features and create your unique style by ornating your body and vehicle.
The ride fun will continue to the afterparty, where there is no dress code—enough space for creativity.
