To celebrate Tokyo's annual Pedal Day festivities, which will be taking place August 16, 17 and 18th, the Night Pedal Cruising crew are hosting yet another all night "nude" ride through Tokyo. Yes its time for Nude Pedal Cruising Midnight 2014!!
Riders will meet on Saturday evening (August 16) at 11:00pm near NHK Hall in Yoyogi Park for a midnight start before setting off on an all night ride which will end at Wakasu Seaside Park in Shin Kiba where we will watch the sunrise over Tokyo Bay.
The route will wind through the streets of Tokyo travelling at a leisurely pace through Shibuya, Shinjuku, Aoyama, Roppongi, Tokyo Tower, Shiba Park, Ginza, and Harumi before ending up at the Wakasu Seaside Park.
As with all Night Pedal Cruising the pace is slow while the company and conversation is great.
Bring a sound system, decorate your bike with lights or whatever you can find and join Tokyo's one and only bike party.
While the ride is billed as being a "nude" ride, under fear of arrest it will be a semi-clothed ride, but cyclists of all state of undress are welcome. You're not obligated to strip off, but we'll demand you have a great time!
Read the full details of the ride here and don't forget to visit us at Pedal Day in Tokyo this weekend.
