"Ride as bare as you dare!"

The World Naked Bike Ride is a once-a-year lighthearted protest or demonstration that is held in approximately 80 cities around the world.

In New Zealand it is held in three locations:  Takaka (Golden Bay), Waitati (Dunedin), and Waihi Beach (Bay of Plenty).

This clothing-optional bike ride aims to:-

  • Highlight the vulnerability of cyclists to motorists who appear blind to our presence.

  • Promote cycling as an alternative to a car culture.

  • Encourage a positive body image for all, improving mental health.


It’s also fun and free!

We welcome everyone of all ages to the World Naked Bike Ride.

This site contains all the information you need about the three New Zealand events.
