Vancouver’s Naked Bike Ride encouraging people to use Mobi Bikes in the nude

The Vancouver World Naked Bike Ride is sliding into town again this June 30th.

The 17th annual ride is a body-positive event, this year being billed as “a protest against car culture and oil spills and pipelines. It is also a celebration of creativity, individuality, and the human powered machine.”

Riders are encouraged to meet at 12 noon at Sunset Beach where there will be body painting and performances.

Riders who don’t have their own bikes are being encouraged by the organizer to use Mobi Bikes. As per their post on Facebook:

“Don’t own a bike? No problem! There are three Mobi Bike Stations near Sunset Beach. Download the app from and join us on June 30th for a bare as you dare, positive protest, sightseeing ride in our beautiful city! (Please use a seat cover if you dare to bare all)”

From what we gather riding a Mobi naked doesn’t violate any of their Terms of Service.

And while they’re encouraging people to “use a seat cover”, it’ll be a BYOSC affair as Mobi doesn’t provide them.

We’ve reached out to Mobi to see if they have a plan in place for cleaning bikes used on June 30th, just in case not everybody knows it’s Bring Your Own Seat Cover Day. We’ll keep you posted.
