The San Francisco edition of  2012 World Naked Bike Ride Day – Northern Hemisphere edition will meet at the northeast side of the fountain in Justin Herman Plaza on June 9th.

Meet at 11:00am  for body painting (Bring body paints, washable markers, watercolors or other easily removed media to apply slogans and designs to your bodies if you wish if you want to protest dependence on oil) and then a Noon departure from the Plaza so that the ride will take place in the warmest part of the day, but they ride rain or shine so no excuses not to be here and bare it out.

The ride generally hits AT&T Park, the embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, the Haight, the Castro and more.

How “Naked” is this ride?: While it is a “naked” bike ride, all are welcome; it’s ride as bare as you dare. That is, body paint, rubber latex, bikinis, topless, lingerie, bubble pack, whatever costume you are comfortable riding with. Skates or skateboards have ridden along with us in the past. How about a nude unicyclist? 

Why so many “World Naked Bike Ride Days?” – Please note there are several “World Naked Bike Rides” throughout the year. The Northern Hemisphere Ride is generally in June and the Southern Hemisphere Ride (which SF also participates in) is generally in March, but a few minor naked bike rides throughout the year. But the June ride is the biggest.
