As Bare As You Dare: The Brighton World Naked Bike Ride Takes Place This Month In Support Of Planetary Survival

The Brighton World Naked Bike Ride are continuing their almost two decade tradition by returning for the 17th time on their traditional date for their ride on Sunday June 12th 2022. One of over 70 rides across the World.

While still very aware, especially of Omicron, they are looking forward to welcoming back their full attendance of up to 1,000 riders in much greater safety from the pandemic.

To make arrival less hectic for those travelling, including people who have ridden in WNBR London the day before, they will assemble in Preston Park from 12 noon to decorate bikes and bodies and then ride off at 2 p.m. 

As Bare As You Dare, through the centre of Brighton, out to Hove and back, finishing at the Naturist beach on Madeira Drive.

Everyone is invited to come along to ride or simply offer support, in continuing the urgent message that we have no choice for planetary survival but to reduce the use of fossil fuels especially in single occupant private cars. 

Human powered transport is an ecologically sound option which can be made enormously safer by the desirable reduction in cars on the road.

António Guterres -  United Nations Secretary General tweeted @antonioguterres on May 18th 2022 at 2:33 pm  

"The global energy system is broken & bringing us closer to climate catastrophe.  

"Fossil fuels are a dead end—environmentally & economically.  Renewables are the only path to real energy security, stable power prices & sustainable employment opportunities."

Nakedness is encouraged but not a requirement. Under 16s must be competent cyclists, clothed, and be in the care of a responsible adult. Cycles only permitted, no skates, skateboards, hoverboards, scooters or runners please on Police advice.
