World Naked Bike Ride

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 ( 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.
