This event is over.
Join the most extravagant Many-FIEST-Action of the year!
For the fourth time in Suomi!
To protest against INDECENT exposure to cars and pollution!
Celebrating Cycling, Nature, Human body, simplicity and freedom of being.
The concept is simple: we do, once a year, a bicycle tour around the city, to get the city back from big motorized vehicles, shout against pollution, cars, and hypocritical prudery.
MONDAY 12 June 2017 - 16.00
Varsapuistikko (next to Kaisaniemipuisto - Kaisaniemi park)
- To manifest AGAINST POLLUTION & car culture;
- PROMOTING CYCLING, Nature & Simplicity;
But the unique reasons why YOU do it may be infinite:
you love bicycles,
you love your city,
you want noiseless means of transport,
you don't want big and fast vehicles in the city,
you don't like the oil industry,
you want to sensibilize drivers to mind the bikes.
...and because you may be an exhibitionst!

... WHERE IT BEGAN
On June 12th 2004 cyclists in 29 cities across the world took to the streets of the world, mostly wearing nothing more than a cheeky smile.
It was not only a huge success, but also a huge surprise, neither the media or the police actually thought that it would happen.
This was the worlds first international naked bike ride. Since then it has spread to more than 70 cities around the world with thousands of participants.
