The World Naked Bike Ride will come to Portland on Saturday, June 27, 2015 it will start at Colonel Summers Park off S.E. Belmont Ave. and S.E. 20th. The group said that the naked bike ride is a protest against our dependency on oil and for cyclist rights. On their website, the naked bike ride is an “annual, worldwide bike ride that highlights the vulnerability of cyclists everywhere and decries society’s dependence on pollution-based transport.” The event attracts thousands of participants which is actually growing every year since it started in 2004.
In 2014, the naked ride kicked off at Normandale Park in residential northeast Portland, some of the neihbors complained about it. In 2013 the event took over the southwest Park blocks around the Portland Art Museum.
Event organizers did not say where the ride stops, but they usually make their way through downtown Portland.
