Saturday: 6/8

It is the World Naked Bike Ride Chicago downtown.  Bikers meet up beginning at 6pm and the ride will begin just before sunset (around 8:30pm).

Organized to raise awareness for bicycle rights, celebrate people-powered transportation and support body positivity, the World Naked Bike Ride is open to anyone willing to pedal through the city’s streets for four hours wearing minimal clothing.

I couldn’t find out where they meet…but I’m sure you won’t miss them!  I hope they have padded seats!  Click here for more info!
