The World Naked Bike Ride


On June 9th, Parisians celebrated World Naked Bike Day, a worldwide protest against a culture of cars governing our streets and polluting our planet.

Hundreds of demonstrators, in costume and lavish body paint, defended their rights by invading the usual car infested boulevards, on bike, board and roller skates. A finale was held at the Jardin de Reuilly.

WNBR also reached smaller cities such as Pau, located in the South West of France, where activists aired the roads entirely naked.
