June 06, 2008 – Press Dispensary – The World Naked Bike Ride ( http://www.worldnakedbikeride.org ) is now in its fifth year, and the rides in early June 2008 are expected to mobilise 2,000+ riders across seven UK cities (London, Brighton, Manchester, York, Southampton, Sheffield and Cardiff). Worldwide, the World Naked Bike Ride takes place in over 50 locations and is believed to be the largest nude protest event in history. The ride is an environmental demonstration against oil dependency and is also a celebration of cycling and the human body.

Riding under the slogan “real rights for bikes”, participants cycle naked to highlight their vulnerability on city streets and draw attention to the destructive effects of car culture. The ride is a body-positive event where nudity is optional – riders are encouraged to go “as bare as you dare”.
