When: Sat., July 15, 7 p.m. 2017
Tonight marks the tenth running of St. Louis' World Naked Bike Ride. The grassroots mission — to raise awareness of alternative transportation and decrease oil dependency, while also promoting positive body consciousness — seems to be making progress. Auto giant Volvo recently announced that all its cars will be electric by the end of this decade, and every day comes a new story of body shamers being publicly derided for their stinkin' thinkin'. But there's work yet to do. A vast horde of cyclists of all shapes, sizes, colors and ages will begin gathering in the Grove at the intersection of Kentucky and Manchester avenues (www.wnbrstl.org) to disrobe to their personal level of comfort. At 7 p.m., they will then ride freely through the streets of the city along a predetermined route before returning to the Grove for an after-party. You don't need to register or pay any fees; just show up, drop trou and get cycling.
Price: free admission
