World Naked Bike Ride Los Angeles – June 14, 2014

The World Naked Bike Ride will be held this weekend, June 14th.  Please mark your calendars and be prepared for +/-200 nude riders traveling on bike around Elysian Valley. They will be either be on the pedestrian bike path or on Riverside drive.  Please make sure the riders can safely pass around the neighborhood by spreading the word and avoiding these areas on Saturday.

If you want more information about the ride here are three articles for your reference. We have also included their official flyer at the bottom of this blog post.


“The ride is on annual WNBR day — Saturday, June 14, 2014. We will send out the meeting point via our RSVP mailing list a day or two before the ride. Make sure to sign up so you get the information! To get cool updates and reminders, make sure to like us on facebook.com/wnbrla. But the meeting point will only go out via the RSVP mailing list.” – World Naked Bike Ride official web page

“One of the fine ensemble pieces of this weekend, one of the great team efforts, will be the bike ride starting outside Dodger Stadium, winding its way downtown, through Chinatown and back to Chavez Ravine, a valiant effort. Sweat and sore muscles will be readily apparent during the 15-mile ride.

Because the 300 or so participants will be — most of them, anyway — completely unclothed.

“Be as bare as you dare,” goes the World Naked Bike Ride rallying cry.

Now it’s L.A’s turn, the eighth year in a row the city has held a naked bike ride.

The Los Angeles Police Department doesn’t endorse it, but neither does the department stop it. City ordinances ban nudity on beaches and in parks, but are more relaxed about other places, as long as there is no lewd behavior involved.

So with the cooperation of organizer Michael Beals, police say they will accompany the riders along the course.

The riders will gather Saturday at noon, at the corner of Elysian Park and Stadium Way, near Dodger Stadium’s Sunset Gate, to go over a few logistics, then pedal off about 2 p.m. It’s all free, and info can be found at worldnakedbikeride-la.org.” –LA Times
