Ride Details

Come join the excitement on Saturday 9, 2012 as the adventurous Washington DC ride!

Purpose: To ride through the United States capital to promote the use of alternatives to oil (or in the negative, "to protest against oil dependency").

We are planning on leaving at 3:00 pm from Franklin Park. We plan to ride past the capital building and the White House.

How Nude is Legal?

DC Indecent Exposure law has been interpreted to mean - one's genitals are covered (Duvallon v DC - 1986). We've worn a tiny penis/scrotum "glove" in years past with no hassles. If followed you need not worry about the police. Women may obviously go top-free. We will have a changing tent.

What to bring?

Please bring body markers. Please bring prepared signs, something to drink (water), sunscreen, helmet, and bike. Search Flickr for "DC naked ride" for ideas.[1] [2]

How to get there?

Please take the subway as parking is limited and those bringing equipment for the ride need it.

Everyone is Welcome!
