The World Naked Bike Ride is happening in Vancouver this June

May 15 2018, 1:26 pm

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.

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 Vancouver Underwear Run, it’s one of those events that always elicits a reaction from anyone 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 and skateboards to rollerblades.

Participants are encouraged to gather at Sunset Beach at noon for socializing, body painting and bike decorating, with the ride kicking off at 2 pm, following a route along several major streets in the downtown core.

The ride and all activities are free and are on rain or shine.
