WDC's 3rd Annual NAKED BIKE RIDE this Saturday, 7 June 2008

In March and June 2008, in cities around the world, people will ride bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body. The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture.

While most Northern Hemisphere rides will take place this Saturday, 7 June 2008, most Southern Hemisphere rides took place on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 March 2008.

At 3pm on Saturday afternoon, 7 June 2008, the WDC 3rd Annual Naked Bike Ride will assemble at McPherson which located at 15th and I Streets, NW, is just across the street from the WMATA McPherson Square Metro Station.

Snacks will be served in a screened off area before step-off. Here are some bike decorating and body art and body painting ideas.

Stepping-off from McPherson Square, WDC's 3rd annual NAKED BIKE RIDE will proceed to the White House and, then, down to the US Capitol Building ... "to protest against oil dependency".

To learn more visit the WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE - WDC and WORLD NAKED BIKE RIDE - WDC / Wiki sites.

Talk is cheap. Spread the word by clicking onto this jpg flyer and then, download, print, distribute and post flyers throughout the city. And at your blog.

DC Residents No Longer Have To Register Bicycles With City

When I captured this bicyclist at Thomas Circle this evening I was not aware that effective TODAY, 1 June 2008, DC residents will no longer be required to register their bicycles with the city. Nor did I know that DC residents were required to register their bikes.

Transportation officials and police instead are encouraging residents to register their bikes by serial number with the National Bicycle Registry.

The national database is accessible by police anywhere in the United States.

To register with NBR, bike owners can purchase a kit for $10 at local bike shops or go online. Or call 800-848-BIKE.

It was when I was uploading this bicyclists photos that I heard the news on Fox 10 News. But since I could not locate the link from, for the purpose of this posting, I'm referencing the news item from WRC 4 NBC News. Which I located when searching the internet.
