Helsinki CycloNudista – World Naked Bike Ride – WNBR

Indecent exposure to cars leaves me naked

World Naked Bike Ride! – on the way

Let’s do our natural Bicycle tour

Spreading the Nature

To the World

Did you know that in the 1930´ in the usa
it was illegal for men to be toplesS in public?

The most extravagant

Many-FIEST-Action of the year!
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, on the hottest day of the summer, we do a bicycle tour around the city.

We want to get the town back from big motorized vehicles, shout(& sing) against pollution, cars, and hypocritical prudery.

While cycling the World, I will Organize, Participate and Promote this event, even in middle-east!

If you see that the site is not updated anymore, search for me. 
But don’t send any US-Army-Bombing, please.

the main “official” reasons/requests are two:

1) The ride is a manifestation against car culture, oil dependency, and pollution in general

2) Nudity is not enforced.

The decision to go naked belongs entirely to the participants. It is up to individual participants to decide how much nudity they are comfortable with.

But 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 so many DANGEROUS big/fast vehicles in the city,

you don’t like the oil industry & lobbying in general,

you wish to sensibilize drivers to mind & respect bikes,

…and because you may be an exhibitionist!

Where it all 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 nor the police actually thought that it would happen.

This was the world’s first international naked bike ride.

Since then, it has spread to 70 cities around the world with thousands of participants.

So how is it organized?

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.

  1. Thanks to everyone for participating, a special thanks goes to our beautiful fellows from Great Britain, they were 100% in the Cyclonudista spirit!

    It was definitely the nicest Cyclonudista Event in Helsinki, the vibe was so good that we have spent even longer on the ride.

    I start to share some pictures here, you can do the same.
    In the future, I will share more pics.
