WNBR Adelaide 2010
Date: Saturday 13 March 2010
Location: Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga.
Insert details here.
A small team of Volunteer Organisers have gathered in the WNBR Adelaide Facebook group to plan and organise the 2010 WNBR in Adelaide. Adelaide will hold a WNBR in 2010.
In July 2009, one of the two 2009 Organisers retired and the other is prepared to help organise the 2010 event without getting in the limelight.
At this stage, the ride details of the WNBR Adelaide 2010 are fully decided.
- The official WNBR Southern Hemisphere and Australia ride date is Saturday the 13th of March 2010. Adelaide will ride on that date.
- The assembly time for the ride is 1pm.
- The assembly location for the ride is Victoria Square/Tarndanyangga.
Would you like to get involved with organising, planning and/or publicity? Please join the WNBR Adelaide Facebook group. Everyone is welcome to volunteer to help WNBR. Adelaide needs a dedicated media spokesperson to join the Organising team as well as riders who are willing to hand out flyers and stick up posters. Why not have a go?
There is a World Naked Bike Ride - Adelaide 2010 Facebook event which you can join too.
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.

NUDE UP WITH ALEXIS DUBUS
Thousands of people nude up whenever photographer Spencer Tunick puts the call out for people to get naked for the sake of art but what about shedding clothes for comedy?
Now you can let your wobbly bits shake in the wind thanks to Alexis Dubus.
The Brit comic who introduced Adelaide to the art of swearing with last year’s show A Bloody Brief History Of Swearing presents his new work A Surprisingly Tasteful Show About Nudity and if he can get 100 people to shed their clothes and get naked for The World Naked Bike Ride on Sat Mar 13 he will do the same.
If you don’t wanna nude up and just want to laugh then simply head to:
Tuxedo Cat until Feb 28 to catch Alexis’ A Surprisingly Tasteful Show About Nudity at 8.30pm (7.30pm Sundays).
- from the article on page 6 in ISSUE 5 (TUE FEB 23 - FRI FEB 26 2010) THE ADELAIDE FIX BRIEFS
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. 2009 will be the second WNBR in SA and there was no trouble with the police in 2008 and just a grumble in 2009 very near the end of the ride. For general discussion of the topic of legality, please refer to the separate page about New South Wales Laws.
Publicity: flyers, posters, images etc
This is the current colour in flyer/poster to be used for the WNBR Adelaide 2010 to help promote participation. Please print these and stick them up where people will see them. Why not colour one in and stick it to your refrigerator?

- Sydney Morning Herald, 17 Mar 2009, Letters to the editor, Easily shocked by Elek Pafka of Surry Hills. Letter reads:
- When naked cyclists crossed the streets of Adelaide last week people cheered ("Cyclists' naked ambitions punctured", March 16). Such rides have been held in 70 cities across 20 countries. All too offensive for Sydney.
