Local organizers of the World Naked Bike Ride have called off the annual event, adding to a growing list of Madison-area events that have been postponed or canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Before the cancellation, the clothing optional ride through Madison was set for June 20. The next one will be held on June 19 of next year.
“Current conditions throughout the world have made it difficult for us all to make plans for the coming months,” organizers said in a statement. “When it will again be safe and practical for people to gather in groups is a matter of uncertainty. In view of this, local organizers have decided not to hold the World Naked Bike Ride this year in Madison.”
