7th Annual Earth Day World Naked Bike Ride

Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 11:00 AM

San Francisco Ferry Building
1 Ferry Building,
San Francisco, CA


All participants are invited to meet Saturday, April 22nd at 11:00AM at the northwest corner outside of the Ferry Building, between the Farmer's Market and Starbucks. The group will have time to gather and renew old acquaintances as well as help initiate new riders.

The ride is scheduled to start just after Noon.

You decide how much bare you can dare, you can go all out in the joy of sun clad nakedness, go topless, bikinis, body paint or latex, leotard or lingerie, or tuxedos, whatever you feel like. For this ride, however, since an oil spill is the target of our angst, an appropriate statement can be made to mimic spilled oil. Nude riders can use black body paint splattered or coated. Those a little timid about nudity can use black trash bags that resemble spilled oil. Or you can be even more creative and artistic with black latex body paint to achieve a sheen and gloss that looks like spilled oil. Since it is Earth Day we are celebrating the environment, so if you don't go the bare route or the oil spill look, then adorn yourself with green colors; shoes, hats, scarves, capes, whatever, to promote a greener way of life.

Skates or skateboards have ridden along with us in the past. Also, we had our first tandem bike in our last ride. How about a nude unicyclist? And music maestro please. How about some of you musical bikes from Rock The Bike sounding off with us?

Our ride will focus on downtown SOMA areas, Embarcadero, and most flat areas along the financial area downtown. We will go down to Fisherman's Wharf and then back toward the Earth Day Festival at the Civic Center where we will pass by its outer edges before ending our ride in the Castro.
