Every year the Canadians take naked bike rides to draw attention to social problems.
How to take part in World Naked Bike Ride in Toronto
World Naked Bike Ride in Toronto has been taking place for 200 years – this is the way the Canadians remonstrate about authority, globalization and their own hang-ups.
Over recent years they have been bucking against black oil addiction – they invoke people to change cars into bicycles to make roads safer and environment cleaner. Bike rider column goes in the centre of Toronto carrying motto “the more you’re naked, the more you’re brave”, attracting drivers by their appearance –bright body art, bright scarves and nakedness.

How to do?

1. The meeting point of naked bikers is in the centre of Coronation Park near big flagpole with Canadian flag. Body-art artists and street painters start working here from 10 am – you can order rebellious motto on you back (something like “Room for the naked!) and paint your bike ($20-100). At 12.00 – there is ceremonial greeting between the participants, at 13.00 – start!
