Montreal’s World Naked Bike Ride ‘an absolute success’ (Aug. 2)

(As posted to my Gazette blog on Aug. 3)

The nighttime version of the Montreal Naked Bike Ride on Aug. 2 was a big success, Scott RedCloud tells me. Scott was one of the organizers of this year’s events, which also featured a daytime ride in July. I asked Scott to write a paragraph for me about last night’s ride (Aug. 2). He also provided me with the link to a YouTube video (above) posted by somebody using the tag “Dubai Spy.”

Here is Scott’s brief report:

The night ride was an absolute success with a little over 200 riders on bikes, unicycles, and skateboards. The group of uni-cyclists provided us with great entertainment — when we had to wait on traffic they did tricks and stunts that everyone seemed to enjoy! During the ride we had a few who had seen us coming around the corner and bared as they dared and joined in on the ride! At the end, people were very pleased with the ride and for many it was their first time. They told me that they can’t wait for next year’s ride and would be there.

The ride covered about about 14 kilometres over five Montreal streets and boulevards and took almost two hours. They did two laps.

To learn more about why the event was held, see an earlier post here.

  1. I loved the hand in hand unicycle couple… So sweet.

    Just wondering why our Jillian was not in there for the ride and to give us an on the spot report… Perhaps next year.

    1. To be truthful, the event is a protest against automobiles, not a nudist event. It would be hypocritical of me to attend an anti-auto rally considering I drive to work every day.
