World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is being organized and supported by many different groups. The groups are only connected by their determination to all be naked on their bikes on WNBR Day, riding in celebration, jubilation to deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world to the masses.
My personal experience to this event is limited to a surprised look and around 50 photos. I really admire these people! They did what I wouldn't even dare to think of doing. Ride a bike completely nude and exposed in one of the busiest streets of the world.
The purpose of the group is promoting cycling and raising general environmental and human issues. I can't say for sure how many of these people actually believe in any of those causes and or took part just because it's fun or different, but that's not the issue neither makes the campaign less significant.
What is really important and that's the message I got from this campaign is that sometimes we should be able to say "Why not". Just go with it, because we want to, because we are still crazy enough to do it.
Unfortunately in our days most people, including me, are too much urbanized, too much enslaved by our social status and image that we have forgotten how it is to feel free!
World Naked Bike Ride is an annual event. This year a batch of crazy nudist will be cycling in London on 10th of June.
