This Year’s Ride

The 13th annual WNBR-STL has been postponed to July 17, 2021 due to the pandemic. 

Dear friends, 

Over the last few months, as COVID-19 has tightened its grip on the world and St. Louis, we have all been faced with many new difficult and life altering realities and decisions. 

After deep consideration and many conversations, the WNBR-STL planning team has made the difficult decision to postpone the 13th annual World Naked Bike Ride – St. Louis to July 17, 2021.

The safety and experience of our riders has always been the most important focus for us and we feel the decision to postpone to 2021 is the right one and is in everyone’s best interest. The event takes 6 months to plan and thousands of dollars to execute. Based on the extreme disruption the pandemic has had, we simply don’t feel that it is feasible or responsible for us to move forward and put the safety of riders, crew, and community at risk. 

While we all wish we could joyfully ride through STL as always, instead we’ll plan on making the 2021 ride even better and truly look forward to safely enjoying it with all of you. 

And in an effort to keep the spirit of the World Naked Bike Ride alive, keep you moving and elevate your spirit a bit, we invite you to join us on social media for a series of fun weekly activities you can participate in on your own time with just your bike, that beautiful engine that is your body, a helmet and a mask of course! The first challenge will be posted next week, so please stay tuned, stay strong and stay healthy!

Sincerely, 

Tatyana, Andrea & Michael

  1. Will the riders come down Washington street this year. All of us in the Loft District loved the riders

  2. To whom it may concern,
    I am wanting to participate in the naked bike ride but for the moment i do not have a bicycle would I be able to walk the Marathon course?

    • You can probably reach out to Mike’s Bikes shop and see if they can rent you a bike.
      As for walking… I’m not sure. It’s about 14 miles, and we’ll be moving at bike pace, so maybe running is more like it.
