Third Annual Buffalo World Naked Bike Ride 2017

It’s time to drop your drawers and get pedaling Buffalo. The Buffalo World Naked Bike Ride is coming up on Saturday, July 29 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Per usual, the way this ride works is that the meeting place is disclosed shortly before the ride commences. Cyclists meet at Sisti Park (intersection of North and Linwood) before heading to another spot and disrobing.

Help us promote our vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world.

The 12-mile ride is not just about the freedom of being nude, it’s mainly a message that we need to stop relying on oil and car culture. This is a national event that uses the sensationalism of nudity to draw attention to a significant environmental issue. The freewheeling ride is pro people-powered transportation. A naked body riding a bike is not only as natural as it gets, it’s also at its most vulnerable state. The ride calls attention to the need of more bike lanes, road diets for cars, etc. Of course not everyone rides fully naked – cyclists are invited to “Bare as they Dare”. The alternative name for the ride is the Buffalo Underwear/Naked Bike Ride.

  • Celebrating freedom from oil and the beauty of people
  • Less gas more ass
  • Fat not oil! Nude not crude
  • Riding Bare for Clean Air

Riders can use body paint and ornamentation to draw additional attention to the ride.

“Celebrating freedom from oil, and the beauty of people.”

The World Naked Bike Ride is an international clothing-optional bike ride in which participants plan, meet and ride together en masse on human-powered transport, to ‘deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world.’

To support this initiative, be sure to “like” the BWNBR on Facebook. Also, for further details on what to bring, locations, times, rules and regs, etc., be sure to stay tuned to the Facebook event page.

    Is that Lena Dunham on the left?

    This, along with the Undie Run, must both be censored and stopped at once!

    • A-BuffalLover

      you need to get laid. So much anger towards the human body.

      • lmt

        I thought it was about clean air? Which is it?

        • A-BuffalLover

          Huh? I’m not following your comment?

    • Sue2525

      I agree! How friggin’ stupid is this? Honestly…now we’ll hear about ladies who get no respect from men, employers, etc. Who the hell wants to ride with no undies? So friggin’ gross.

      • A-BuffalLover

        Sue2525 – I agree – it is stupid and gross. But if people want to do it, it shouldn’t be censored. There is nothing wrong with the human body. I just disagreed with censoring.

    “The 12-mile ride is not just about the freedom of being nude, it’s mainly a message that we need to stop relying on oil and car culture.”

    Oh yeah, that will get the message across. Guy driving in car sees naked people biking. “Hey, I’ve got to start biking!”

    This article is either from The Onion, or the world has gone mad.

      Bet those same naked riders do not hesitate to switch on the furnace in the winter and the air in the summer. If they are promoting cleaner air, it’s going to take more than a naked bike ride. Bet those tree huggers also use disposable diapers on their babies. Most of these people are not going to ride to promote cleaner air, they are going to ride because they think it’s cool to ride naked. Disgusting.

    Ask yourself how many spectators are going to be out there for a look at some T&A vs. how many of them will take to heart the intended message about air pollution and alternative transportation. This naked bike ride is not quite as stupid as the prudes who will predictably get all hung up about nudity as if the human body were this bad and dirty thing, but it’s pretty close.

    And of course, like every other crackpot idea that rears its head in this city, Newell is all for it.

    • Michael F. Harris

      This crackpot idea has been in cities around the world for decades.

  • Rain

    Seems like a good event to get some road head.

  • Arcot Ramathorn, Jr.

    an event for those starving for attention. “I’m naked look at me”. I prefer not.

  • armyof100clowns

    This is clearly a covert operation by the alt right white supremacists to erode the legitimacy of the righteous left’s social revolution! Where is the diversity in those promotional photos!

  • John Joyce

    Bicycle is a product of mechanical engineering requiring application of unnatural amounts of energy by the manufacturing processes involved and by its’ very nature contradicts the intended purpose of minimal atmospheric interference in pursuit of “clean” air. Back-pedaling (of course pun-intended) in the strict requirement for nudity and permitting various stages of dress by participants reveals the acknowledgement by organizers that most people agree that public nudity is inappropriate and if it must take place be confined to nudist colonies of which one must note there are extremely few. Possible bright spot in need for a disposable paper seat cover and a new addition to the pantheon of Made in Buffalo products.

  • Wally Balls

    If clohing is optional, why is it “The World Naked Bike Ride” ? Shouldn’t it be the “If you’re not a prude, naked bike ride, otherwise wear shorts” ?

    • Michael F. Harris

      because in more progressive cities more people are involved and they are naked. Since Buffalo is a backward, back water town we do everything wrong.
