It's Official, Montreal's Naked Bike Ride Returns This Weekend

Two of the best things ever, being naked and riding a bike, are coming together this summer for the World Naked Bike Ride. Every year, cities around the globe cycle in the nude to simultaneously celebrate biking, the human body, and also to showcase the vulnerability of bikers on the road, something Montreal is all too aware of these days.

Montreal will be holding two separate Naked Bike Ride events, during the day and in the night. Read up on last year's event for an idea of what will go down. Here are the details for this year, with more to follow closer to the respective dates:

  • Daytime Naked Bike Ride: July 5th @Phillips Square
  • Nighttime Naked Bike Ride: August 2nd @Phillips Square

The dates just dropped via The Naturist Page's twitter feed, who released the event poster below. Strip and cycle for a good cause, so see you all in the nude come July Montreal.

Will you be naked bike riding?
