Bare as you Dare

Each year, thousands of Portlanders gather en masse, take off their clothes, and ride through the city streets. Since 2004, World Naked Bike Rides happen in more than 75 cities around the globe–but Portland, Oregon, hosts (by far) the largest. Assembling a quirky cast of first-time riders and event organizers, this light-hearted documentary explorers  the variety of experiences and meanings the annual event holds for participants. Some ride as a display of vulnerability and environmental awareness of transportation, while others ride to break out of their shells or contend with issues of health and body image. Whatever they ride for, this short celebrates the joy of “baring as you dare” in the world’s largest naked bike ride.
