Urban Tribe - Ride with your kids in front.

Are you ready to party…naked?

That’s right folks. The big and gnarly World Naked Bike Ride and Dance Party is tomorrow night.

If you missed last year’s ride, I can tell you that it was amazing (read my report here). It was probably the most memorable ride I did all year. We had hundreds of naked people riding through downtown Portland. Panties littered the bike lane. Bystanders, in disbelief at the sight, left their cars, removed their clothes, and wanted to join us. Lots of high fives and smiles (even from the cops).

It was a glorious experience (except for the few folks who met the pavement with their naked bodies…ouch!).

This year’s party (and World Naked Bike Ride starting point) is at the Organics to You warehouse (606 SE Madison). The fun starts at 9:00 pm. Be there or be clothed (and regret it!).

It’s really not a big deal. At midnight, you just take off all your clothes and have the most fun on a bike you’ve had all year. If you’re curious, check out the slideshow below for some pics of the party and the naked ride. See you there!

    Thanks Jonathan!

    For those that don\’t know the 3 guiding words for coordinating this event are:

    Safe, Comfortable and Fun

    Please visit the following site for more info on the party and ride:


    Also, we are hooked up on beer and wine to sell but could really use some help with food to share with people. So if you could being a little something like bread, pizza, hummus… that would rock.

    The party is free to get into if you ride your bicycle and is 18+ and older, plase make suer you bring your ID.

    Thanks again to the 40+ volunteers, Organics To You, New Belgium Brewery, Urban WineWorks,SHIFT, City Repair and the YOU ( the Portland bicycle community ) for making this happen.

    Hmmmm, after my brevet tomorrow I may be just tired enough to lack the judgment to stay clothed . . . on the other hand, I may be just chafed enough to really need to keep the ol\’ panties on . . .

    This was the funnest bike ride I\’ve ever been on, and I\’m shy and reserved and not the type to get naked at the smallest opportunity!

    Also note, you don\’t *have* to get totally naked. Just as comfortable as you want to be.

    First timer to the World Naked Bike Ride? Well whadda ya know?! This is your lucky day, coz we wrote an entire kickass article just for you!

    Nervous to ride naked in the rain (might bring some stockings?), but going to try it….
