Cape Town Naked Bike Ride 2014: Share share your #WeLoveCapeTown messages
Roy Barford has lived in more than 10 cities and towns around the world, but decided to settle in Cape Town. He loves the fact that he can enjoy both urban and natural adventures every day, surrounded by creativity and tranquility.
He is a sports fanatic who can often be found at Newlands rugby and cricket stadiums, while he also enjoys outdoor adventure activities and exploring Cape Town's vast nightlife options.
Roy has written for publications such as the Sunday Tribune, Cape Argus and the Star, and has also blogged for websites such as Southafrica.net, Tablemountain.net.
The 2014 Cape Town Naked Bike Ride takes place on Saturday, 8 March – and it’s a fantastic (and cheeky!) opportunity to show how much #WeLoveCapeTown.
The ride starts, starting from the Prestwich Memorial at 10h00 and ends at the same venue around 11h30, after riders have completed several kilometres around the city centre.
This event is an excellent opportunity to create awareness about various environmental and social issues, including ways to be more sustainable.
Cape Town is a finalist in WWF’s We Love Cities competition, and stands in line to be voted Best-Loved Sustainable City. The Cape Town Naked Bike Ride is therefore an excellent great opportunity to share your messages and help raise votes for Cape Town at the same time.
There are several ways to vote. Every tweet and Instagram post that includes #WeLoveCapeTown counts as a vote for the Mother City, so use this hashtag when you post your Naked Bike Ride photos on Saturday!
A competition is being run to see who can contribute the most #WeLoveCapeTown photos, and the prize is a solar water heater valued at around R22 000. Read more about this here.
Please note you can also vote daily for Cape Town to be named the best-loved sustainable city by visiting: www.welovecities.org/capetown
If you’d like to ride on Saturday, you just need to arrive with a bicycle and a helmet – go as bare as you dare.
