This is the BIG ONE!!!

Time to get undressed to the nines! It's the 9TH Annual World Naked Bike Ride, Northern Hemisphere edition, in San Francisco. Each year, our turnout is getting larger and larger riding bare through the streets of the city.

It is time to bring your bikes to Justin Herman Plaza between Market Street & the Embarcadero Blvd.

WNBR March 2012 riders

We meet on the northeast side of Vaillancourt Fountain, between the fountain and Embarcadero Blvd at 11 AM. Bring body paints, watercolors and markers to apply slogans and designs to each other and adorn your bikes with signs; meet with old and new friends.

While it is a "naked" bike ride, all are welcome; it's ride as bare as you dare. That is, body paint, rubber latex, bikinis, topless, lingerie, bubble pack, whatever costume you are comfortable riding with.

Our ride is part of a global protest taking place today in many cities throughout the US, Europe and other cities in the Northern Hemisphere. Tens of thousands of naked bike riders are protesting the global dependency of our society and economies at the hands of the oil cartels. We want to emphasize the harm this dependency causes to our environment, businesses and social lives. Nobody is unaffected. We want to endorse more bike riding and our nudity expresses our vulnerability to these matters. It also draws attention to our cause.

We will ride through many popular spots in the city such as Fisherman's Wharf, the Marina, along Embarcadero by AT&T Park, the Civic Center, and many more places of interest. It's great fun and an event you shouldn't miss.
