Bristol World Naked Bike Ride 2024 - Bike riders of Bristol - join us!

News

We will ride in 2024, on Sunday 7th July. There may also be a second ride, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the WNBR, on a weekend in August.

There will be a special protected group for female participants, and lots of emphasis on finding and breaking down the invisible wall which stops riders with non-white skin colour from joining us. We think better advertising has a significant role here. The committee re-formed in February, so this announcement consists of things we decided upon at the end of last year. The route hasn't been plotted yet, but it will be in the city centre, and it will be different every year.

The new shortlink for advertising purposes, is chipshed.org/Bristol (It's not case-sensitive... This may change soon, but the old one will continue working.)

We have a snazzy new local website, with an extended FAQ.

Ride event Facebook page TBA

The ride is a celebration of the bike, cycling and to highlight the vulnerability of cyclists.

You don't have to be naked! The theme is "as bare as you dare" If you want to dress up, dress down or strip off completely, you are most welcome.

Planning collective

UK rides are expected to be planned in a collective manner if possible, and York, London, Cardiff, and Brighton rides adopted this style of organisation. Bristol's ride is organised through open planning meetings where decisions are taken collectively.

We have a ride coordinator who will facilitate the ride planning process whether or not there are sufficient people for a planning collective.

Here's what the coordinator normally does:

  • answers people's questions with care and consideration
  • keeps track of who is doing what, and how far through things people are
  • deals with problems and follow the discussions at the national level
  • provides email updates to let people know what's going on
  • points out where and when help is needed
  • acts as a contact point for general enquiries (email and sometimes mobile phone)
  • maintains contact information (and keeps it secure)

Additional responsibilities that the coordinator may choose to take on:

  • arrange meetings, compile agendas, provide minutes
  • ensure that the collective remains non-hierarchical but organised
  • moderate an email list for Bristol ride planning
