The 3nd annual WNBR Folkestone
Saturday July 2nd 2016,
meet 2pm ride 3pm.
Ride As Bare As You Dare!
Eliminate All Dependency on oil & gas for A cleaner greener environment
and make roads SAFER for cyclists
MOTORISTS STOP killing cyclists, you don't notice/see cyclists on the roads when they have clothes or high viz on but you do if we get our kit off. Why is that??? how about notice us with clothes on as well.
The world naked bike ride (wnbr) is an annual demonstration that draws attention to the absurdity of oil & gas dependency and celebrates the potential of cycling and the human body. The overuse of the planet's vanishing oil reserves causes pollution, global warming and leads to war, inequality and injustice. Many politicians want to subsidise the car industry and build more runways. They call such follies progress but this is progress towards disaster.
WNBR is an international movement, with rides taking place in over forty locations in the UK and around the world. Riding naked emphasises the vulnerability of cyclists on the road, at the same time as celebrating humanity in the face of mechanisation. If it seems a little crazy, think about the total madness of car culture and its inevitable results.
if you're worried about going nude on the day don't panic as it's fully clothing-optional bare as you dare, Full and partial nudity is encouraged, but not mandatory and if the route is too long for you, you can pull out at one of the rest points.
