Adelaides first WNBR will be in 2008. Be there and be part of history ! Marte Kinder is the initial point of contact. To make WNBR Adelaide 2008 a success, if you can offer help or ideas, please contact him. People interested in participating or helping Marte organise a WNBR in Adelaide should join the WNBR Australia Yahoo! group and facebook discussion groups, try to make contact with others with similar views and demonstrate some initiative. It will happen, and you can be a part of it !
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. In 2008 the riders did not encounter the SA Police so how they might react if encountered is uncertain. For general discussion of the topic of legality, please refer to the separate page about New South Wales Laws.
