BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Bellingham’s 6th Annual World Naked Bike Ride is tomorrow night.

Ride organizer Zach Robertson says for him, being in the bike ride means taking a stand against traditional social norms.

 

He says bikers can wear some clothing or none at all, it’s up to what they are comfortable with.

Body painting starts at 4:00 p.m. and the ride itself starts at 6:00 p.m. at the Hub bike shop on State Street.

As they do every year, Bellingham Police officers will escort the naked bikers on a set route downtown.
