Join now the most extravagant Many-FIEST-Action of the year!
For the NINTH Time in Finland!
Last year it was memorable, with the most hardcore cyclonudista coming to the ride.
Therefore we will do our fantastic ride again on the warmest day of the year!
Protesting against INDECENT exposure to cars and pollution!
Celebrating CYCLING, NATURE, Human BODY, simplicity, and FREEDOM of being (naked).
The concept is simple: we do, once a year, on the hottest, sunniest day of the summer, a bicycle tour around the city to get the town back from big motorized vehicles, shout against pollution, cars, and hypocritical prudery.
SATURDAY 23nd of JULY 2022 - 15.00 (Departure at 16:00)
Varsapuistikko (close to Railway Station and Kaisaniemenpuisto)
- To manifest AGAINST POLLUTION & car culture;
- PROMOTING CYCLING, Nature & Simplicity;
- We want ALL CITY ROADS to be BIKE ROADS, SHARED ROADS! (Pyöräkadulla)
However, the unique reasons why YOU join the ride may be infinite:
you love bicycles,
you love your city,
you want noiseless means of transport,
you don't like cumbersome and fast vehicles in the city,
you disagree with the speculations of the oil industry,
you wish to sensibilize drivers to mind the bikes.
...and because you may be an exhibitionist!
Varsapuistikko - next to Kaisaniemen Puisto - Kaisaniemi park, close to the main train station.
You can come from 15:00 to 16:00.
15.00 - PICNIC
We can have a nice picnic together, sharing some food, music, and funny cyclonudista stories.
15:30 - BODY PAINTING
We can body paint each other and decide which is the specific message---"your motto"---each of us wants to share.
16.00 - DEPARTURE
Strictly on time, be ready by 18:00!
18.00 - SAUNA
We celebrate the celebration in the sauna: warm & cozy!
Sompasauna, a free, anarchic, public sauna. By the sea.
In the heat and steam, we will have time to share our thoughts and feelings about the ride: what does this ride mean for each of us?

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 a huge success and a huge surprise; neither the media nor the police thought that it would happen. This was the world's first international naked bike ride. Since then, it has spread to more than 70 cities around the world with thousands of participants.
