World Naked Bike Ride - Chicago #16 at TBA

June 8, 2019 from 6pm to 11:45pm
Massive event promoting the end of oil and the beauty of people.  Held globally with dozens of cities participating.  Bare-as-you-dare with outfits ranging from body paint to fanciful costumes to beachwear. Chicago's seen over two thousand cyclists and skaters and more tour over a dozen miles of high visibility tourism and recreation areas. The ride's atmosphere is extremely joyful and transcendently fun.  Bicycles are the best solution to reducing America's oil addiction and improving public health and we're spreading that message.  Read full details at ChicagoNakedRide.org/aboutFor additional general discussion see The Chainlink group.See More
