13th June will see naked* cyclists assemble at Middle Meadow Walk.
As part of World Naked Bike Ride, Edinburgh is hosting another cycle as a “fun and peaceful protest against car culture”.
Assembling at Middle Meadow walk from 3pm on Saturday 13th June, cyclists will ride to the top of Holyrood park for a downhill ride, coming back up through the New Town and finishing back at the Meadows. The cyclists will be escorted by police officers (not naked) to help the event run smoothly and make sure that no decency laws are broken.
The clothing options are pretty simple: “bare-as-you-dare”
Join the organisers at they
- Protest against oil dependency,
- Raise awareness of the rights of cyclists as road users,
- Demand a better riding environment for city cyclists
…and take to the streets of Edinburgh in the June sunshine!
* For legal reasons the official dress code is that genitalia should be covered, to avoid scaring small children and horses, apart from that, go wild.
You can read more information on preparation for the ride here including what is and isn’t acceptable to wear in relation to the law.
There’s Facebook event page to confirm your attendance.
