World Naked Bike Ride needs volunteers

Posted by on June 9th, 2010 at 10:33 pm

This just in, from WNBR crew:

Here is an update of what we need in terms of personhood to make WNBR happen. We’ve had a lot of response, for which we are grateful, but a little extra push is needed to ensure that this event can happen. PLEASE help our fair city get naked, and on bikes.

And why do it alone? Bring a friend! Have a ball! Make instant friends and charm the pants off of them! More the merrier, so if there’s a shift you’re eying and a friend you want to share it with, fear not the numero uno! Two is better than one (usually).

Kindly email with your:

  • name
  • email
  • phone number
  • shift preference. We’ve still got about 30 volunteer shifts to fill, so don’t be shy. There’s a shift for you, all ye of Shift.

Thank you very much for considering spending some time with us and others who are willing and thrilled to go “Bare As You Dare” in the name of bike affection.

    Both myself and my girlfriend are interested in volunteering at the bag check in pre or during ride. Neither of us has bikes but would like the opportunity to support this project by adding our voice to the outrage of the oil industry, especially this year with the current environmental crisis. My contact number is 503-245-1445. It is my hope that you can utilize the two of us this year! Sincerely, Cindy
