Celebrating bicycle power and the beauty of people World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is an international clothing-optional people powered event that highlights the vulnerability of cyclists everywhere, decries society’s dependence on pollution-based transport and promotes positive body image. It’s also just a lot of fun!
The event is bare-as-you-dare; anything from body paint to underwear to fanciful costumes are encouraged. Due to legal restrictions in St. Louis, full frontal nudity is at your own risk, but many participants do go all out. Large-scale body painting is typically available pre-ride, and personal expression is encouraged.
St. Louis’s past events drew over 2000 riders, and covered over ten miles of high visibility city areas.
Blessed by decent summer weather in a great cycling city, the event has grown into a fantastic rolling celebration, complete with a massive afterparty. Participants often describe it as a transcendent group experience, personally transforming, and beyond superlative. 2019 marks the 12th anniversary of the World Naked Bike Ride in St Louis.
The ride is on Saturday, July 20th 2019.
