Event description

Description

(NB. Registration is not required. It's fine to just turn up on the day!)

Join a celebration of bikes and bodies! We’re demanding safer, easier cycling so Bristol can be less dependent on polluting, road-clogging cars.

Meet in the courtyard of the Full Moon pub from 11am for bike and body decoration; together we'll decorate and fortify ourselves before departure at 12pm.

The ride is about 7 miles through Bristol city centre. We go really slowly and we avoid any intimidating hills! We finish back at the Full Moon at around 2pm.

The dress code is "as bare as you dare"!

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
No, though we ask that under 18s are accompanied by an adult.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
If you're travelling from outside Bristol, please come by bike or public transport. If you must travel by car, please car share. Here's the nearest public car park.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No. You don't even need to register to attend - just turn up.

I don't have a bike. Can I borrow one?
No, but you can hire one.

I ride a recumbent bike / unicycle / skateboard / something else. Is that allowed?
Yes! We'd love to have you take part.

Why are you riding naked?
We are celebrating cycling in a visible way. We are highlighting how vulnerable cyclists are on our roads. We want society to be less car and oil centric.

Why does it matter?
Each year, over 190 deaths are attributable to air pollution in Bristol. We must be more ambitious about escaping car culture's grip, and freeing our streets for use by everybody. 81% of people in Bristol want better safety for people on bikes. And 70% of residents want to see more spent on cycling.

Isn’t it illegal to be naked in public?
Non-sexual public nudity is legal in England. We’re not trying to cause alarm or distress. Feel free to look the other way.

I’m a car driver. Do you hate me?
No! We want to give you more options so it’s easier to leave the car at home. If you have to drive, drive on clearer roads by persuading others to walk, cycle, or use public transport. Lobby our new metro mayor and the work of Bristol Cycling Campaign.
