World Naked Bike Ride (#9! since 2004). Yearly. Gathering and body painting before 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's past rides rallied 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.
