Since 2004, the World Naked Bike Ride has been spreading it's message of opposition to car culture and oil dependency in rides throughout the globe. The ride celebrates the power and individuality of the human body. Many riders will have their first experience of social and non-sexual nudity through the ride. All rides are clothing optional in the truest sense. There is no pressure for riders to go more clothed or nude than they wish. Rides range in size from the very small (Sao Paolo 2004 had 2 riders) to the very large (Zaragosa 2004 had 400 riders). The average ride is under 100 riders, but London beat the odds by having 250 riders in 2005 for it's second ever ride. There are over 100 rides planned for 2006.

Governments can't deal with the challenge!
Climate change is the greatest threat to ever face humanity and its happening now. Governments and big business dream of continued economic growth so won't deal with the crises. What we really need is a fundamental shift in the way we live - AWAY from consumer society, continued economic growth and power concentrated in the hands of the few. TOWARDS locally based, grassroots, community solutions.
We are organising a minibus to get people to the Climate Camp from Cornwall.
Details (including costs) are still being sorted out but if you are interested in going to the camp and would like to possibly come on the minibus, please contact me.
July 15th will be an International Day of Action Against Climate Change. As G8 energy ministers promise trillions in new subsidies to the industries destroying our planet and our future, we will take action to shut them down! This is a call for autonomous, decentralized actions appropriate for your town, city, or bioregion.
Tuesday 16th May, at the Sumac Centre, 245 Gladstone St, Forest Fields, Nottingham. For directions see Â http://www.sumac.org.uk
The Camp for Climate Action will be happening from 26th August till 4th September this summer. The government is failing and unable to take real action on climate change, and we can not sit back and see our planet go up in smoke!
Today saw the latest of Tyneside's monthly critical masses which take place on the 1st Saturday of the month, meeting 12noon at Haymarket.
Another glorious hot day spent with new friends going round the city centre streets. We forgot flags and leaflets this time but created quite a spectacle anyway, with the occasional lone cyclist or rollerblader joining in spontaneously. The driver of 'Corporate Hospitality' coaches wasn't too happy though, hee hee.
There will be a critical mass starting at Lansdowne roundabout, Bournemouth, at 1pm, Saturday 27th May

Mayday celebrations in Manchester began yesterday (Friday) with a Critical Mass. Numbers of cyclists had almost doubled from previous months.
Yet, the Mass alos turned out to be more chaotic than usual. 40-50 cyclists could not agree on how fast to go, whether to stop at red lights etc. In the beginning the tail of the ride got lost several times.
