Naked Bike Riders Takeover The City


Downtown Toronto was a sight for sore eyes when streets were packed with passionate bike riders riding in the core of downtown with no clothes to cover up. The ride went through several highly populated areas like Kensington Market, the University of Toronto, and City Hall.

The World Naked Bike Ride serves as a global protest against the overconsumption of oil and increasing rates of urban pollution. The event also promotes greater cycling safety while encouraging body empowerment.

The event allows people to strip as much or as little as they want. In this special scenario, the dress code is no dress. For shy and modest bikers, they can still show up to the protest fully dressed.

Some people came fully nude while others joined the fun with their undergarments. The ride also featured people in avant-garde costumes and colorful body paint was available at Coronation Park before the biking journey.

There were no hidden registration costs, sponsors, or other barriers to entry. Everybody was welcome to flash their bodies for a good cause.

At the end of this year’s bike ride, a ferry takes passengers to Hanlan’s Point for a swim at a clothing-optional beach. It was yet another successful event with crowds enjoying themselves and no one had to struggle in the morning with overwhelming outfit decisions.

The World Naked Bike Ride originated in Vancouver, Canada, and has now expanded to include over 80 cities worldwide.
