MADISON, Wis. - Cyclists will join Madison’s World Naked Bike Ride on June 15 to encourage body positivity and environmental friendliness.
The international event is hosted in dozens of cities each year as a way to spread awareness of poor self-esteem and petroleum’s harmful effects, according to a news release. With a gradual increase in participation, this marks the 10th year that the bike ride will be held in Madison.
Although its name suggests otherwise, cyclists are not required to ride naked. Riders can also use transportation other than bikes.
The event will start at 11 a.m., with a location to be announced. Organizers say there will also be a designated viewing location open to the press and public.
