Melbourne's World Naked Bike Ride 2018

On 18th March 2018, the World Naked Bike Ride returns to Melbourne, bigger and better than ever!!!

The World Naked Bike Ride is an annual, worldwide bike ride.

Through our naked and highly visible presence on the streets of Melbourne, we aim to:-

* Highlight the vulnerability of cyclists to motorists who appear blind to our presence
* Protest against transport powered by non sustainable forms of energy
* Promote positive body image for all

The naked aspect of our ride provides a unique opportunity to promote our causes to the general public, and the media who are always keen to cover the ride.

Our naked riders are as vulnerable as the planet that we live on due to the over reliance on non sustainable sources of energy. We set an example by choosing an environmentally friendly transport choice. Ditch your car, grab a bike, and do your health and the earth a big favour.

And why is it that cyclists continue to be killed and injured on our roads, by car drivers who claim not to be able to see bicycles. The excuses by some motorists that they fail to see cyclists are totally unacceptable.


The World Naked Bike Ride encourages drivers to take notice of cyclists, and promotes cyclist safety.

Our society has created a model of the body beautiful, which is reinforced constantly through advertising and the media. Many people, both male and female, struggle with the perceived imperfections of their bodies. The same people avoid showing their bodies due to fear of criticism or rejection. The World Naked Bike Ride is a totally inclusive event. You don't need to dress up for this event, just come as you are.

Many people also, incorrectly, seem to only associate the naked body with sex. We aim to de-sexualise nudity and celebrate the human body, in all its shapes and sizes.


We welcome all, male and female, and all ages to the World Naked Bike Ride Melbourne 2018. Please join us on Sunday, 18th March 2018 for our 12th Annual ride, the biggest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere. Details on our web page, www.wnbrmelbourne.com.au, and our Facebook https://facebook.com/WNBRMelbourne/

It's also a fun and free event!
