Rules for the Vancouver ride

  • Nudity is not forced on anybody. You decide what you are comfortable with.
  • Respect the diversity of many different body types, and refrain from ogling.
  • Realize that although we are naked, many people consider that private parts are still private. Don't bring them up as a topic of conversation with somebody you do not know.
  • This is a "Leave No Trace" event. Don't litter and take everything out that you bring in. Including your clothes. ;)

Naked bike riding tips

  • Prepare for riding rain or shine!
  • If sunny, put on sunscreen!
  • You do not have to be fully naked to join the ride.
  • Wear shoes!
  • We often start the ride with some clothing on and then stop away from the crowds to get bare!
  • Keep your clothes with you -- you never know when you may need them (like... after the ride).
  • Decorate your bike! Come with signs and funky hats! Cover your bike seat with fun fur.
  • Ride safely and stay together as a group.
  • Tell your friends! Spread the word!
