World Naked Bike Ride

When: Sat., July 16, 5 p.m. 2016

The World Naked Bike Ride is more than just the perfect opportunity to bicycle al fresco with a large group of like-minded people. It's the most cheerful protest against oil-dependency you'll ever see, and it's also a celebration of the human body in all its myriad shapes, colors and styles. You'll witness mastectomy scars, body hair, tattoos both beautiful and not-so-great, cellulite and stretch marks; but what you'll remember are the smiles and how everyone looks great in their birthday suit. The World Naked Bike Ride sets up along Manchester Avenue between Sarah Street and Kentucky Avenue in the Grove. The pre-party starts at 5 p.m., and riders take off at 7 p.m. Admission is free, and for more information, visit
