CycloNudista 2017 Helsinki – Get rid of the accessories!

The most extravagant Many-FIEST-Action of the year! – For the fourth time in Suomi!

Do you know that oil kills more than wars, traffic accidents and murders all together?
For me this is already enough to dissent against it.

 

Wanna know why we do CycloNudista?
To protest against INDECENT exposure to cars and pollution!

Celebrating Cycling, Nature, Human body, simplicity and freedom of being.

The concept is simple: we do once a year a bicycle tour around the city, to get the city back from big motorized vehicles, shout against pollution, cars and hypocritical prudery.

12 June – 16.00
Varsapuistikko (next to Kaisaniemipuisto – Kaisaniemi park)

… WHERE IT BEGAN

On June 12th 2004 cyclists in 29 cities across the world took to the streets of the world, mostly wearing nothing more than a cheeky smile.

It was not only a huge success, but also a huge surprise, neither the media or the police actually thought that it would happen.

This was the worlds first international naked bike ride. Since then it has spread
to more than 70 cities around the world with thousands of participants.

 

HOW IS IT ORGANIZED

Well, the first thing to know is that it does not have any leaders, hierarchies or even any bureaucracy. It is an event that belongs entirely to its participants. You are not only invited to participate in this event, but also to take ownership of it.

Cyclonudista Copenhagen – World Naked Bike Ride Denmark WNBR – Friday 12 June 2015 18.00 – Amagerfælled park

Let’s do our natural bicycle tour in Denmark

The most extravagant Many-FIEST-Action of the year!

To protest against INDECENT exposure to cars and pollution!

Celebrating Cycling, Nature, Human body, simplicity and freedom of being

The concept is simple: we do once a year (on 12 june) a bicycle tour around the city, to get the city back from big motorized vehicles, shout against pollution, cars and hypocritical prudery.

FRIDAY 12 June 2015 – 18.00 

Amagerfælled park – Copenhagen, Denmark


WHY?

the main “official” reasons/requests are two:

1) The ride is a manifestation against car culture and oil dependency

2) Nudity is not enforced. The decision to go naked belongs entirely up to the
participants. It is up to individual participants to decide how much nudity
they are comfortable with.

But the reason YOU do it may be infinite:
You love bicycles,
you love your city,
you want noiseless mean of transport,
you don’t want big and fast vehicles in the city,
you don’t like the oil industry
you want to sensibilize drivers to mind the bikes

…and because you may be an exhibitionst!

On Ilta-sanomat (a finnish newspaper) they are quite criticizing the ride:

http://www.iltasanomat.fi/kotimaa/art-1288700417065.html#send-comment

After they interviewed me I still have something to say,  maybe even more important than what I said in the interview (cause during an interview you don’t always have much time to think about what to say).

 

This event has two big messages (at least for me):

 

1) PROMOTING CYCLING  (and similar transportation means):

 

A bicycle is:

Fast,

Efficient,

Compact,

Healthy,

Social (you have the chance  to communicate with people next to you if you cycle)

Affordable,

Fun,

Mark of independency Makes the cycler feeling satisfacted of himself being able to move with “his legs”,

Challenging you to repair it yourself feeling even more proud of yourself,

Natural (keeps you in contact with the earth),

Handy,

Panoramic: it makes you admire the view you have around,

Simple,

Sincere and transparent (cause you can’t hide yourself),

Easily movable/carriable,

Safe,

Makes you look younger (study from Stanford University),

Increase your brain power (Research of Illinois University),

Sportive (Low-impact type of exercise),

Easy to park,

Making  you feel traveling (you see where you are, and discover slowly places),

Making you Breathing good air (when you are between the trees),

Setting you on a higher point of view than in a car,

Flexible to stop where you want,

Making you go wherever you want,

Allowing you to listen audio-books or music during the trip = learning,

… Even more reasons here:

http://www.bikeradar.com/road/gear/article/30-reasons-to-take-up-cycling-23965/

 

 

While big motorized vehicle (such as cars) are:

arrogantly invading the city,

making  pedestrians and cyclers wait long time at the traffic light breathing gasoline,

Covering the beauty of architecture and landscape,

under the capitalist monopoly of politics and economy,

Making social discrimination,

Polluting,

Loud,

Expensive (to drive and to maintain)

Dangerous,

Cumbersome,

Smelly,

Support the oil industry,

Slow, (cars go in average 14 km/h in the cities),

Make traffic congestion,

Unhealthy,

Anti-social (cause you lock yourself in the car, you are kind of alienated),

Hard to park (there is often no space to park),

And counting:

http://www.nutramed.com/environment/cars.htm

 

2) NAKED = EULOGY TO SIMPLICITY AND FREEDOM, AS OUR PLANET

Simplicity (you no need much to feel good),

Love for your body = love for yourself = love for humans

Freedom to show yourself,

Freedom to not have anything with you,

Refusing all accessories that this society continuously propose us,

Showing how delicate you are,

Naked you are equal to anybody else,

You are not hiding behind masks,

and more:

In this article it looks like that the police come to stop us or to argue. Is not true, actually I notified in advance to the police that we were about to do this protest and they were there to block the traffic and give us the right of manifesting.

Kids have no problems with nudity, adults are the ones that teach them (wrongly) that nudity is a bad thing, kids grow up with this uncomfort for their body cause adults continuously told them that they have to cover them self all the time.

Is not in my intention to offend or irritate people by being naked, I am not asking (directly) that we should all go around naked, but I ask to be listened, I would like that people realize that simple naturalistic nudity (which appears as a bad thing) is not harming anyone, while pollution, over-consuming and waste is destroying us, we can’t eat from trees cause they are polluted, we can’t drink from rivers cause they are contaminated, we can’t breath in cities (and soon also outside cities) because air is full of  particulates.

We no need to be scientists to understand this, just take a deep breath in middle of the traffic jam and see how you feel.
