Toronto World Naked Bike Ride 2017

Those cheeks are made for biking and that's just what they'll do with the return of the world wide bicycle protest against oil dependency and the promotion of cycling safety. In the northern hemisphere cities like Belfast, Frankfurt, Vienna and Moscow have had the ride and will hopefully join Toronto for the Saturday, June 10, 2017 WNBR.
WNBR Route. Bottom left is Coronation Park

Coronation Park along the waterfront near Exhibition Place is the starting point for the bare as you dare adventure through many of the top tourist spots in Toronto. WNBR organizer Gene Dare usually is on site early and people generally start showing up at the War Memorial in the park around 10am, socialize, pose for pictures, get some body painting done, put some flyers on their bikes and by 1pm everyone is ready to head out on the road.
Join the clothes free gang as they visit the seat of the provincial government, cycle through Kensington Market, please locals and tourists alike at Toronto's busiest pedestrian intersection at Yonge and Dundas, dip into the cool waters of the reflecting pond at City Hall and eventually return to Coronation Park to wind up the adventure. Usually many of the riders take the trip by ferry to the Island's nude beach at Hanlan's Point but I am not sure what will happen as most of the Islands are closed due to flooding.

Hanlan's beach destination is canceled due to the flooding. See more of the ride after the jump.
