Bellingham Naked Bike Ride & Body Positivity Block Party @ Make.Shift Art Gallery
Jun 7 all-day

Join us, Friday, June 7th as we ride to protest our “indecent exposure” to fossil fuels, highlight bicyclist’s vulnerability, and redefine cultural narratives about body image.

Riders, and non-riding participants, can join the action with body painting, starting at 4 pm at a block party (focused on body positivity) in front of the Make.Shift Art Gallery, 306 Flora St. At 6 pm, the ride will embark from this location, lapping through downtown Bellingham. Live music follows the ride, as the Body Positivity Block Party continues.

Only ride “as bare as you dare” wearing as much, or as little, as feels comfortable! This event is both free and freeing, but donations are so appreciated!
