The annual World Naked Bike Ride returns to Toronto this week and will be rolling through downtown in all its glory this Saturday, June 9.
Each year, World Naked Bike Ride protests car culture, the pollution cars make and use of non-renewable energy like oil.
Since 2004, cities from around the world have joined the liberating movement, making this the world’s largest naked event promoting cycling.
And much like the No Pants Subway Ride, it’s one of those events that always elicits a reaction from everyone who witnesses the ride.
Not sure how much to bare? Participants can ride as free or as covered as they please and ride whatever they like from bikes to skateboards and rollerblades.
Participants are encouraged to gather at Coronation Park at noon for socializing, body painting and bike decorating, with the ride kicking off at 1 pm, following a route along several major streets in the downtown core.
If you’re unsure of what to expect, you can check out pictures from last year’s ride here.
When: June 9
Time: 1 pm to 6 pm
Where: It starts at Coronation Park (by the waterfront at the centre of the park; at the big Canadian flagpole).
