2011 World Naked Bike Ride-St. Louis This Saturday (SFW)

The 2011 World Naked Bike Ride-St. Louis will happen this Saturday June 11 through the streets of St. Louis. Race leaves at 9p from the S. Grand parking lot behind the Commerce Bank at Harford & Arkansas.  The race will then snake through the streets of St. Louis.

Here's an approximate map from the Event Website 

Here's where you can catch the race as it goes through the Island

  • right Sidney

  • PAUSE @ RUSSELL (approx 3 min)
  • right Russell
  • left 9th
  • right Lafayette
  • left 7th
  • follow Broadway
If you follow this Route in your head, you'll realize that a lot of bars in Soulard are on this route.  I watched it last year from Llywelyn's which has a great view of it from inside.  iTap would also have a great view.  Shanti, Hammerstone's, 1860, Joanie's, Johnny's, Carson's, and McGurk's are also all along the route, just make sure you listen for the commotion and look outside.

There are some pictures from last year's event on the RFT website or by searching for "2011 World Naked Bike Ride St. Louis" on Google, but be careful, some of these images are NSFW as the name of the event would suggest
