World Naked Bike Ride Toronto 2020 is back June 20

A naked protest is taking place next Saturday when the postponed #WNBR will roll through the streets of Toronto on June 20, 2020. This event is part of the global protest against urban pollution and our dependency on oil. Just show up and ride. You can see more posts of previous rides by checking out my link to WNBR.

Ride organizer Gene Dare says "We are riding. Third week of June. June 20, 2020. Keep your ass safe. Masks and Bicycle distancing in effect. Ride at 1 p.m. Decorate and message your mask. The ride is as safe as Toronto is; otherwise, do not ride if you are not comfortable." Remember, LESS GASS, MORE ASS.

The ride will start at Coronation Park along Lake Shore Boulevard, which is just south of the Princes' Gates at Exhibition Place. From the WNBR wiki page

"Time: Gather at 12 noon. (RIDE AT 1 P.M.) for socializing, body painting (the detailed artists will be there at 10a.m.), bike decorating etc. Bring food to share if you wish. RIDE STARTS AT 1 P.M. rain or shine, following a route along several major streets in the downtown core. Location: It starts at Coronation Park (by the waterfront at the centre of the park; at the big Canadian flag pole. A couple of backup sites have been chosen nearby just in case are event interferes with an event that has not finished. There are other events going on at Coronation Park. Be respectful. Inukshuk Park, just 200 meters west and worst case, we will meet at the CNE's Prince's Gates, just northwest of Coronation Park; across Lakeshore Ave.)"

The annual ride that takes to the streets of cities around the world was put on hold during the Covid-19 precautions, originally scheduled for June 13, the flattened curve has started to open up activities in many counties, including Canada. Outdoor activities with social distancing are being promoted for health and stress relief and so this protest ride is back on - take everything off but the mask! Actually the ride is as bare as you dare.
