Sydney - The World Naked Bike Ride Sydney assembled at the southern end of Centennial Park before cycling into the Sydney CBD, via Anzac Parade and Oxford Street. Cars stuck in traffic tooted their horns and members of the public cheered on the naked cyclists.
There were a large number of those in their late teens or early twenties making their way by car and on foot to the Future Music Festival taking place at Randwick racecourse nearby. They were quite amazed to see the line of naked and near naked cyclists pass by them.
The route taken took the naked cyclists from the southern end of Centennial Park up Anzac Parade, along Flinders Street to Taylor Square, where there was a short rest. They then cycled down Oxford Street towards the CBD. At Hyde Park, the ride headed north along College Street towards The Domain.
Just a few people had turned up at the start to watch, but there was little to see as all the cyclists taking part went into the bushes to remove their clothes before they headed off across Centennial Park towards the city centre.
Along Anzac parade the cyclists were high-fived by young music festivalgoers and those stuck in the traffic tooted their horns and cheered. Many were drunk which added to the general revelry.
There were no problems with the police who were nowhere to be seen.
The frequently asked questions on the World Naked Bike Ride website explains that the events are “about protesting oil dependency and celebrating the power and individuality of our bodies. Naked bicycle people power!”
