Adelaide will hold a WNBR in 2013.

Would you like to get involved with organising, planning and/or publicity? Please join the please join the WNBR Adelaide Facebook group. Everyone is welcome to volunteer to help WNBR. Why not have a go?

When the ride is planned and coming up:
The ride is `bare as you dare' --- we suggest body paint, but you are free to wear as much or as little as you want. Fancy dress, self-decoration and other attention-grabbers are all very much encouraged. See The Art of WNBR for ideas on decorating yourself and your bike as well as lots of other background information. Knowledge is power !

Want to ride naked but aren't sure ? Get down to the local clothes-optional beach and get used to the idea of being nude outdoors and in public. But remember --- it's bare as you dare. You don't have to ride naked if you don't want to.

Make sure your bike is reliable. There will be no back-up team. If your bike lets you down, you're out of the event ! Sorry. Consider getting the fancy puncture-resistant tyres; they're expensive, but might save you on the day. Don't just dig that old boneshaker out of the shed two days before the event and hope it will be alright. It won't. If you don't ride regularly, start now; get to know your machine so that you're not worrying about it during the ride.

The laws that are relevant to public nudity in South Australia are applicable througout the state. For the relevant law in South Australia, please check this external link: SUMMARY OFFENCES ACT 1953 - SECT 23, Indecent behaviour and gross indecency. Note: indecent exposure is distinct from indecent behaviour and gross indecency so non-sexual nakedness is less likely to attract police attention. 2012 will be the fifth WNBR in SA and there was no trouble with the police in 2008, just a grumble in 2009 very near the end of the ride, grumbles in 2010 at the beginning of the ride and grumbles in 2011 near the very end of the ride. No one has been arrested in the history of the event in Adelaide or in Australia. For general discussion of the topic of legality, please refer to the separate page about New South Wales Laws.

Publicity: flyers, posters, images etc

Discussion group/s


"I'm a UK comedian doing a show at the Adelaide Fringe about nudity, called "A Surprsingly Tasteful Show About Nudity." I'm trying to persuade 100 members of my audience to do the ride, and if they do, I'll do it myself."
