Portland’s Naked Bike Ride organizers encourage participants to carry on by themselves
The World Naked Bike Ride will now be celebrated, instead, as World Naked Bike Ride Day. It’s June 27th — save the date.
The organizers first announced last month that the city’s Naked Bike Ride would look a little bit different this year due to the pandemic.
The annual event, which last year saw 10,000 participants in varying degrees of undress, is meant to protest against society’s dependency on oil as well as promote cyclist safety and body positivity. While public nudity is illegal in Portland, the Naked Bike Ride has been allowed because it is an official protest.
It’s not clear, though, what that means for participants riding around nude by themselves.
CNN reached out to the Portland Police for comment. They didn’t respond.
