   Indecent Exposure to Cars: The Story of WNBR

A first look at a new movie about people, suspense, intrigue, love and potential environmental catastrophic collapse.

Our group of highly entertaining movie makers has set upon a world wide mission to interview as many of the WNBR organizers as possible and uncover their personal motives and ambitions for world domination. More info.

   Stop indecent exposure to vehicle emissions!

“The Auckland World Naked Bike Ride’s purpose was to draw attention to oil dependency and the negative social and environmental impacts of a car dominated culture. Last year 250 Aucklanders were killed by vehicle emissions, and 94 people died in car accidents on the roads of Auckland alone” - Simon Oosterman

(Photo above): Protesters gathered outside a courthouse on 17 Feb 2005 to protest against the arrest of Simon Oosterman (second from left), Auckland's 13 Feb 2005 WNBR organizer. More info at the Enzyme WNBR website.

   Paint your body, kustomize your bike!

Be creative and colorful in expressing yourself! Bodypainting, bike decorating, kustom themes, and other creative expression is strongly encouraged!

Golden Bay riders throw a bodypainting party before their Feb. 2005 ride.

What to wear? Do not fear! The World Naked Bike Ride dress code is "Bare As You Dare"... How bare is that ? How dare is that ?...Its all up to you, you decide what you are comfortable with. No one is exluded or discriminated against based on levels of clothing, bodypaint, or anything else, for that matter!

Find out more about planning your bodypainting party
