PRESS RELEASE:

Chicago's FOURTEENTH Annual World Naked Bike Ride (and Skate)!
Saturday June 10th 2017 - Gather after 7pm, Ride by sunset.
* Check-in point will be announced online shortly before ride day *

WNBR-C is a fun and conspicuous event celebrating the end of the oil era and promoting positive body image. The ride's atmosphere is extremely joyful and transcendently fun. Bicycles constitute the best solution to reducing America's petroleum addiction and improving public health. This event is global with dozens of cities participating world-wide and Chicago among the top turnouts.

This is a bare-as-you-dare event with outfits ranging from nude to painted to costumed to undies. Chicago's past years rallied thousands of cyclists and skaters covering a dozen miles of high visibility city tourism and recreation areas.

CAMERAS / INTERVIEWS:
Photography is strictly forbidden in our lot before and after the ride. Cameras or press within a block of our lot will draw negative attention.
The best spot for person-on-the-sidewalk interviews at the check-in point, by following our news closely for that announcement. DON'T block the road with trucks and tripods.
Smart reporters follow the ride's progress live on MassUp.us and ChicagoNakedRide.com and on Twitter as @ChiNakedRide and #WNBRC.
Dedicated journalists have actually done the ride.
These hints have well served press before. Within days after ride our staff will have photos posted online you can use.
