The most extravagant Many-FIEST-Action of the year! – For the fourth time in Suomi!
Do you know that oil kills more than wars, traffic accidents and murders all together?
For me this is already enough to dissent against it.
JOIN US To protest against INDECENT exposure to cars and pollution! Celebrating Cycling, Nature, Human body, simplicity and freedom of being.
The concept is simple: we do once a year a bicycle tour around the city, to get the city back from big motorized vehicles, shout against pollution, cars and hypocritical prudery.
12 June – 16.00
Varsapuistikko (next to Kaisaniemipuisto – Kaisaniemi park)
– To manifest against car culture & Pollution;
– Promoting Bicycle, nature & simplicity;
The reason YOU do it may be infinite:
You love bicycles,
you love your city,
you want noiseless means of transport,
you don’t want big and fast vehicles in the city,
you don’t like the oil industry,
you want to sensibilize drivers to mind the bikes
…and because you may be an exhibitionst!
Varsapuistikko – next to Kaisaniemipuisto – Kaisaniemi park, close to the main train station.
16.00 – MEETING
We meet in the park.
come on time, or anyway before 18:00 (if you are working) because we can share some time together.

… WHERE IT BEGAN
On June 12th 2004 cyclists in 29 cities across the world took to the streets of the world, mostly wearing nothing more than a cheeky smile.
It was not only a huge success, but also a huge surprise, neither the media or the police actually thought that it would happen.
This was the worlds first international naked bike ride. Since then it has spread
to more than 70 cities around the world with thousands of participants.
HOW IS IT ORGANIZED
Well, the first thing to know is that it does not have any leaders, hierarchies or even any bureaucracy. It is an event that belongs entirely to its participants. You are not only invited to participate in this event, but also to take ownership of it.
