Set your modesty aside and grab your bicycles, because Portland’s annual Naked Bike Ride is returning next summer!
This free event is just one of the almost 100 naked bikes rides that happen around the world. In Portland, the first Naked Bike Ride took place in 2014, and has become an annual tradition since then.
The Portland Naked Bike Ride is a way to protest against “society’s dependence on oil,” according to a release, and takes place every year to celebrate green methods of transportation.
So why ride naked?
Riding naked promotes ideas of staying healthy and living an active lifestyle by using self-powered methods of transportation.
We're having a volunteer appreciation party this Thursday. Haven't signed up to volunteer? Now's the time! http://signup.com/go/DFZVUfm
