The Bare As You Dare documentary, directed by Ian McCluskey, premieres at the 11th Annual Filmed by Bike, April 20-23, 2013, at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland, Oregon. The film follows several unlikely-to-get-naked cyclists as they forgo their clothes and ride with thousands of people on the Portland World Naked Ride.
World Naked Rides started as a demonstration against excessive dependence on oil, but have quickly spread around the globe as celebrations of the freedom of bicycling. Portland’s annual ride, founded in 2002, is widely regarded as the largest in the nation, though the numbers have not yet been verified. Organizers hope to get an official count at the next ride this June.
Filmed by Bike is a film festival showcasing the best bicycle movies from around the world. The festival runs April 20-23, 2013, at the Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street in Portland, Oregon.
