Sydney Body Art Ride
version of the World Naked Bike Ride
Annual Sydney Body Art Bike was held on the 11th February
malls collapsed, roads flooded but the Sydney Body
Art Ride went through.
to all the wonderful people who showed up for yesterdays
third annual Sydney Body Art Ride. Despite the gloomy
weather reports and a number of conflicting events
we managed to muster 200 riders and the sun shone
down on us all day. In fact the perfect weather lasted
until we had finished packing the last few things
back at UNSW. Then the rain came down and conveniently
rinsed the left over paint off the lawn. (The Purple
riders had left the biggest paint puddle)
year we had a coffee van, a veg/non veg BBQ and music.
With the numbers down a bit our paint team was able
to put in extra effort on giving people more elaborate
designs and in the first few photos Ive seen
there is some great artwork. In fact the whole event
was a bit more relaxed and easy to manage. This year
was the first time weve had a Sad Wagon
to pick up riders whose bikes break down and for the
first time we needed one. One of the Red Team was
collected and transported to the Beach. Seems like
the Gods love SBAR.
organisers we were very proud of how well behaved
everyone was down on the Beach. Conditions were pretty
rough so everyone stayed inside the flags and didnt
go in too far. Three riders were stung by blue bottles
and unfortunately two of them were younger riders,
all three have fully recovered and I guess we were
lucky that out of 200 people only three got stung.
youngest rider this year was seven years old (apart
from the pregnant women of course) and the oldest
was 60. We had the highest number of Piercings ever
recorded with a rider displaying nine of them to take
out the prize. We also had a new colour in our Rainbow,
a group of people brought along their own white paint
and added floral designs which looked fabulous. Two
of the Whites took out the Best Decorated Bike
prize with their extremely floral tandem.

to everyone who came along and especially to all of
our volunteers who work so hard every year to make
sure we all have a great day. (Credit: Jake Lloyd
