Like the Facebook event page says: "Here it is finally. New York City will officially be joining in with thousands of cyclists around the world for the World Naked Bike Ride." Yes, finally. The event will take place with New York City’s inaugural nudist roll out (Critical Ass?). "Bicyclists in dozens of cities around the country and northern hemisphere will bicycle in the buff to 'stop indecent exposure to vehicle emissions.'" Now this is important: the ride begins at 5 p.m. at West 23rd Street between 11th and 12th Avenues, departure is around 6:30 p.m. on an, as of now, secret route (hopefully nowhere near South Williamsburg). No one will be excluded, there's been some mention of bodypaint. If you get photos, tag them with "Gothamist" on flickr! Or not! Use your best judgment, we can't decide.
