The World Naked Bike Ride, also known as WNBR, is a Spanish initiative. Born in 2001 in Zaragoza and now held all over the world.

It is a protest against the domination of the cars and other motorized traffic. The organization claims the “road back for people who live there and move on their own human power.

But why completely naked on the bike? It shows the vulnerability of the human body  in traffic. It’s a worldwide success and since a few years off course also in the Netherlands being an bicycle land.

With similar intent and goals started Conrad Schmidt in 2004 the World Naked Bike Ride as a global action. On June 12, 2004 was also the first WNBR held in the Netherlands, this was held in Apeldoorn. Since then this event with naked people on bikes made ​​annually, each in June, just like most other cities in the northern Hemisphere.

So, get or rent a bike at June 9 and join the ride at the Amstel station between 12:00 and 13:00! The start is at 14:00 and ends at 16:00.
