Getting there by rail

The assembly location is about 600m due South of St Peters Railway Station which is on the Bankstown Line. Time tables for the Bankstown Line on weekends for trains from Town Hall and all stops to St Peters and Liverpool or Strathfiled via Lidcombe to St Peters are available on the CityRail website.

The CityRail network services many suburbs and towns in the network. Many services converge on Sydney. Please refer to the CityRail Timetables.

Ride details

It has been decided that the WNBR Sydney ride assembly place will also be the body painting place so there is no ride between two separate locations as there was in 2008. Clothing is optional in the World Naked Bike Ride. Riders can keep a minimum amount of clothing until after the ride proper has riden some distance form the assembly/painting place. This is called: A Rolling Start. In 2008 it became obvious that the presence of the press and public would have saved the riders from harrasment from ill-informed and overzealous authorities (see: The Age, 9 Mar 2008: "Naked cyclists cop grief from security".

Newcastle rides on Saturday the 14th of March 2009. Newcastle is within commuting distance of Sydney so keen participants can ride in both of these places.
