Description

World Naked Bike Ride #11!!! (since 2004). Yearly. Gathering after 6p, departs before sunset.
Massive bike and skate event celebrating the end of the oil era, and promoting positive body image. Held globally with dozens of cities participating, and Chicago routinely setting U.S. turnout records.
This is a bare-as-you-dare event with outfits ranging from body paint to fanciful costumes to beach-wear. Chicago rallies many hundreds of cyclists and numerous skaters covering over a dozen miles of high visibility city tourism and recreation areas. The ride's atmosphere is extremely joyful and transcendently fun.
Bicycles constitute the best solution to reducing America's petroleum addiction and improving public health. With gas prices skyrocketing and obesity an epidemic, our messages have become truisms.

World Naked Bike Ride Chicago is proud to announce that DONATIONS ARE NOW TAX DEDUCTIBLE!


We're partnered with Break The Gridlock (a Chicago NFP org promoting appropriate transportation) as our "fiscal agent" making our PayPal buttons and T-Shirt orders now go directly to a subaccount under their 501.c3, a step I recommend to any local cycling advocacy groups and projects.

We've actually been a member org for at least a year, but only just now finished the bank account move. Finally the debit card is out of my hands. Internally this complicates things in that expenses must be documented and qualified for reimbursement, and all affairs are handled by BtG's treasurer and board. But I felt it important not just for the non-profit perk, but pursuant to transparency and trust to take myself off being the sole accounting contact.

So DONATE AWAY PLEASE! Or order T-Shirts. Details about the tax exempt status are online, or if you're donating big and really want a confirming letter, just ask.
