The annual World Naked Bike Ride returns to Vancouver this June and will be rolling through downtown on Saturday, June 30, giving you the perfect excuse to strip down.
The annual event is meant to protest car culture, the pollution cars make, and use of non-renewable energy like oil.
And for those who want to participate, but don’t have a bike of their own, organizers of the annual event are offering the perfect solution: Grab a Mobi bike and get ready to bare it all.
“Don’t own a bike? No problem! There are three Mobi Bike Stations near Sunset Beach. Download the app from www.mobibikes.ca and join us on June 30th for a bare as you dare, positive protest, sightseeing ride in our beautiful city,” reads a post on Facebook.
Just in case you haven’t been paying attention, Mobi bikes are the ones you see throughout the city and are available for anyone to use.
While some might be concerned about potential hygienic issues that could arise from baring it all on a public bike seat, organizers offer the perfect solution.
“Bring a seat cover.”
Don’t own a seat cover? No worries, organizers have you covered there, as well: “There are helmet sleeves available at Mobi stations, and those would work just as well as a seat covering too,” they said.
So there you have it. While your body may not be covered, at least your bicycle needs are all taken care of.
The ride and all activities are free and are on rain or shine.
When: Saturday, June 30
Time: Ride begins at 2 pm
Where: Sunset Beach (near the corner of Beach Avenue and Bute Street)
