It's the 6th Annual World Naked Bike Ride - San Francisco 2017 Northern Hemisphere Ride - Part II

So once again, on Saturday, July 8, it is time to toss your riding duds in the wash because you won't need them for our 5th and final WNBR of the 2017 bike naking season.

This is the BIG ONE!!! Well, the second BIG ONE!!! Heck, lets just call it the 6th Annual World Naked Bike Ride - San Francisco 2017 Northern Hemisphere Ride - Part II. A number of cities in the farther northern latitudes have scheduled their WNBRs in July, including Alberta, Seattle, and Vancouver, the home of our WNBR founder Conrad Schmidt. In his honor and all the other participating cities conducting rides, San Francisco will also ride again.

We meet near the Ferry Building on Embarcadero in an open public area to the north and between the Farmer's Market and the Starbuck's. We will begin meeting there at 11:00 AM. Please remained dressed until we have sufficient numbers of riders and are near the time we will ride.

We will have time to do body/face paint and reacquaint ourselves with old friends. 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. Our ride typically begins just a bit after the Noon hour.

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. And we have already had several WNBRs while under cloud of the oppressive anti-nudity ordinance, with NO citations or complaints. If you are still uncertain, than its best to have a sarong, a beach wrap or shorts ready for quick coverup.

As always, our ride is in continued protest of an unsustainable energy policy in all nations around the globe. We support the innovation of alternate and improved energy technologies, the social commitment to a more sustainable energy consumption and generally the pure fun and joy of riding naked to draw attention to these issues.

You decide how much bare you can dare, you can go all out in the joy of sun clad nakedness, go topless, bikinis, body paint or latex, leotard or lingerie, or tuxedos, whatever you feel like.

Skates or skateboards have ridden along with us in the past. Also we had our first tandem bike in a recent ride. We've had a nude unicyclist? And music maestro please. How about some of you musical bikes from Rock The Bike sounding off with us?

Our route will take us through our usual favorite areas along Fisherman's Wharf, The Marina, North Beach, The Haight, and downtown. The route will be published just before the ride.
Tell all your friends and hope to see you bare.
