You are invited to be 'bare as you dare' as Puerto Vallarta joins the bicyclists around the globe for the 12th Annual World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) on Saturday, June 13, 2015 beginning at 3:00 pm.
The bikers will meet up at El Oasis del Holi by the beach on Calle Paloma and caravan south to the Malecon arches and then return for more partying.
This will be the third year that Puerto Vallarta joins in the festivities with World Playero Bike Ride. Of course, non-motorized bikes will be the mode of transportation.
The World Naked Bike Ride originated in Vancouver, Canada in 2003. This protest against oil dependency and the way the cult of the car dominates contemporary life is also an unfettered celebration of individuality of the human body. Total nudity is an option but if you're feeling bashful you are welcome to cover up.
Expect games and contests on the beach including body painting. There will be live music and a DJ.
The objectives of the WNBR include:
• Question the excessive dependence on fossil fuels.
• Respect for the cyclist and pedestrian, naked against the traffic!
• Promote the use of transportation of human locomotion, more equals better health exercise.
• Enhance your strength and body individuality.
The WNBR is presented as a civic and civil manifestation on wheels, where it is suggested to go as bare as you want. Participants are organized to be seen by motorists, raise awareness, promote the use of bicycles as transport sustained energy, recreation or transportation, so to give insight to the world that the bicycle is a means of transport free of contaminants, safe, beneficial for the body and health. Short, medium and long term, this then represents a public health benefit.
