Brighton Naked Bike Ride 2020
Preston Park Chalet Cafe Preston Park, BN1 6 Brighton
2020 RIDE - DATE TO BE CONFIRMED!
Join us - as bare as you dare - for the Brighton leg of the World Naked Bike Ride! The annual mass ride which takes place in over 50 cities around the planet:
- celebrating bikes, bodies and low-impact living
- protesting against fossil-fueled climate change and the dominance of our streets by cars
- highlighting the vulnerability of cyclists and our strength and safety in numbers
We will gather to decorate our bikes and our bodies, ready for an 9-mile ride around the city, ending at the Naturist Beach at Black Rock for a big splash.
The ride aims to be celebratory, life affirming and inclusive. We will cycle with sound systems and flags highlighting the many environmental and social issues which cycling and body freedom can address.
Up to a thousand participants expected.
While we welcome photography at the start of the ride, we ask all to be respectful of those they photograph, and where possible to ask for consent. As usual, we will provide a protected area for undressing and preparation, away from intrusive and unwelcome photographers.
The Brighton ride is one of many around the UK and worldwide happening during June, including London and other UK cities.
The ride forms part of national Bike Week.
Please ensure that, if participating, you have a road-worthy bike, bring sunscreen and something to drink. Children are welcome and should be accompanied by an adult carer.
AFTER-PARTY: Informal gathering on the naturist beach from about 5:00pm (weather permitting)
