      The World Naked Bike Ride - Sunday 15th March
      ******************************************************
      3pm Union Club Hotel, corner of Gore & Webb Sts, Fitzroy.
       
      Mission Statement: We face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians plus all the negative effects of oil, cars, war, consumerism and non-renewable energy. The Protest Themes in 4 Words: Naturism, Environmentalism, Pacifism and Biketivism.

      Clothing is optional. The dress code for the World Naked Bike Ride is "Bare As You Dare"! YOU get to decide how naked you wish to be. If that means completely naked, the decision is yours. Fantastic Fun! World Naked Bike Ride is the biggest naked protest event in the world. It is the grooviest, funniest, most hippie greenie event. Riding in the WNBR will give you a natural high and a feeling of joy, liberation and freedom that will amaze you. The memory of WNBR will cheer you for years to come.
