Many of these photos may not be safe for work.
Before we turn the page on the 2016 World Naked Bike Ride, we wanted to share some fun photos from Michelle Wilkinson, a local freelancer I met during the World Naked Bike Ride setup who offered to share some of her favorite costumes and body paint here on the site.
Also, for those who’ve wondered what it might feel like to be part of the ride, we’ve also shared a video shot Saturday by longtime participant Tom Hardy. Check it out below.

Bonus: Here’s a video from the ride shot by Tom Hardy, a BikePortland reader who’s been rolling with WNBR for 9 years. It shows the first few minutes of Saturday’s ride as it got rolling out of Mount Scott Park, just after 9 p.m.
That should complete our coverage of the biggest ride of the annual Pedalpalooza bike festival. Thanks for checking it out — now back to your regularly scheduled (but slightly more serious) local bike news.

Keep Portland WEIRD!!
Curious to know this year’s turnout. We contemplated it, but it was so far out of town!
(Yes, we’re lazy).
Easily the most offensive photo is the one of Jeff Gudman for Treasurer…
It’s one of the common Google Adsense ads right now for the middle of our posts. 🙂
World (portland, and like 2 other cities) mostly topless ride
A little biology education for you. The end of the month is a time when a LOT of women feel the need to wear shorts.
No WNBR here in China 🙁
There it stood in the middle of SE Woodstock Boulevard, a 42-inch-tall orange breadcrumb surrounded by a bustling commercial district.
