The World Naked Bike Ride is an international bike ride that promotes body positivity and clean methods of transportation. It is a liberating, exciting, and very fun bike ride that supports a very good cause. People can wear as much, or as little clothing as they want. Creativity is also encouraged. Bike riders can wear crazy costumes, wigs, or body paint as a way of protesting the world’s use of cars that are polluting our planet.

It is probably easy to be judgmental of a bunch of people getting naked and riding bikes. But the World Naked Bike Ride is a very fun and safe bike ride. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world participate. You can bare it all for this crazy, goofy ride. You will still have plenty of people cheering you on!

Andy_H:  Hey, Dominique!

Dominique:  Yeah?

Andy_H:  Are you ready for the big event?

Dominique:  What event?

Andy_H:  The World Naked Bike Ride! It’s happening in our town this Saturday, and you can join me and bare it all for a good cause.

Dominique:  Wait, whaaat?

Andy_H:  Mmm-hmm.

Dominique:  Did you say naked?!

Andy_H:  Naked.

Dominique:  Oh, no! Never!

Andy_H:  What?

Dominique:  Oh, no! I like my clothes on, buddy!

Andy_H:  OK. Well, before you get too judgmental, I just want you to know that the whole thing is about body positivity, about liberating oneself from the prison of clothing, and about protesting really bad tendencies that we do as humans. Like, I don’t know, polluting the world by having more than a million, billion, bajillion cars driving around, killing the environment.

Dominique:  I am all for the environment, believe me, and protesting, but not that way. I like my clothes on. And if we’re going to do a bike ride, I would love to keep them on. But I’ll be there to support you, cheering you on! And if you need some water, I will have water on tap for you.

Andy_H:  OK. Just so you know, if you do come to support, like, your eyes can’t unsee that image.

I never participated in the World Naked Bike Ride. I think this is a wacky and no efficient way to allert to a clean and healthy environment! However if someone wants to support a body positivity theory, and decide to bare it all, maybe that works.

I will cheer on who is able to support clean and healthy environment!

I think that participate in the World Naked Bike Ride is a good way to claim against enviromental pollution. It’s funny and goofy. I think that this movement was with clothes, and not naked, nobody put attention on them. Whatever if everybody bares it all for a good cause, the eyes of a lot of judgmental people will not be able to unsee, and the mass media will report about it.
