Seasons Greetings everyone from WNBR-SF.
While it looks like the New Year 2022 might not have another full Bike Naking Season, and the Riptide Bar has made no announcement about A New Years Day Polar Plunge at Ocean Beach, that doesn’t mean we have to give up beginning 2022 with our own WNBR and Polar Plunge.
In the same fashion as Critical Mass, people have a habit of showing up anyway for established events. Since the Riptide sponsored Polar Plunge has drawn 400 or more people every year, it stands to reason several hundred will show up to plunge, whether or not the sponsors are there to host it.
So let’s do this. On New Years Day, at around 11:00am, we will have a World Naked Bike Ride, an unofficial gathering at the intersection of Taraval and the Great Highway. Got that? Not Lincoln, where we have met at the past Plunge events, but at Taraval, where we typically finish. This worked out well and gives us two laps on the Great Highway, so this is where we will continue to meet for the New Years day Polar Plunge World Naked Bike Ride. If it isn’t raining, then we’ll ride down to the Lincoln end of the Great Highway and back to Taraval. Then we will go down onto Ocean Beach to participate in a Polar Plunge. If the weather is good, we’ll stay around afterwards. If it is raining; we’ll plunge and we’re done.
As always, nudity is optional; ride as bare as you dare.
