The World Naked Bike Ride in Amsterdam (July 2nd, 2022) is an amazing experience that everybody can either participate in, witness or support. It is a cheerful, light-hearted way to stand up against oil dependency and car culture. And that is even more relevant this year! It is also a signal that we are not impressed by people that are repressive of other peoples’ personal freedom. So join in as Bare As You Dare! Stay comfortabel in your own skin!
Who will you meet that day? Well: in many cities all over the world the WNBR attracts engineers, university professors, carpenters, environmentalists, sport cyclists, gardeners, multimedia artists, bike activists, naturists/nudists, social activists, therapists, poets, city workers, college students, artists, millionaires, people who are living in poverty, union workers, legal professionals, people who are just curious what it would be like to ride — and people just like you! Everybody is invited!
Go as Bare As You Dare!
You don’t have to worry about the police that day, since the WNBR Amsterdam has been approved by the city of Amsterdam. And most citizens of the capital of The Netherlands are absolutely okay if you want to ride along with many other (one day) nudies that day. They will probably wave kindly. And if you don’t have a bike you can rent one or use a skateboard, inline skates, rollerskates, rollerblades or step. As long as you are the engine you are fine.
Considering the idea behind the WNBR Amsterdam we recommend bringing something that communicates the messages of the ride (opposition to oil dependency and celebration of our bodies). You could paint the message onto your body. You could mount a sign/object/flag onto your bicycle. You might want to wear a prop (mask, wings, tail, etc). Just use your imagination. if you want to protest against the Ukraine war or any other conflict fueled by oil dependency: just do it! If you want to support nudism or naturism: that is awesome too!
The WNBR Amsterdam is organized to celebrate cycling and the human body. The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road, though Amsterdam has one of the largest number of cyclists in te world! The bike is the fastest way to get from A to B in this historical city. It is probably the best place to show that oil is an overrated commodity.
If you want to join us in Amsterdam on July 2nd 2022 then please feel free to do so! Get it of your bucket list! And go as bare as you dare (we recommend wearing shoes btw). The WNBR Amsterdam is for people of all ages, sizes, builds and appearances, so it is most definitely for you! We will show the world how varied real bodies are. To make it more festive: body painting, customizing your bike, and other creative expression is strongly encouraged! Or at least have a colorful mindset!
