FLESH will flash past in a fleet of naked and painted cyclists in Nimbin on Saturday.
The celebratory exposure of "dangly bits" will raise awareness of the vulnerability of bike riders and pedestrians as part of the annual World Naked Bike Ride.
Organiser Mijimberi, a teacher from Nimbin, said the ride encourages participants to strip down and ride clothes-free.
"In a regional area the reality is people do need to use cars, but the ride exposes our vulnerabilities as bike riders and hitchhikers," Mij- inberi said.
"I believe in sustainability and finding alternatives to cars - alter- natives that are softer on the environment," he said.
This is the fourth year of the ride in Nimbin. The first World Naked Bike Ride was held in 2004 in 10 countries with the aim of promoting human-powered transport and delivering a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world.
The riders meet up, strip down and often paint their bodies before riding in a group to the amusement of bystanders.
"The first ride I joined was in Byron Bay five years ago," Mijimberi said.
"I thought it would feel weird, but I always go swimming nude at the beach and I found it was similar.
"For a lot of people it's a brave move; some people start off partially dressed, and then the next year they strip completely.
"It's a unique occasion where people can show their dangly bits and say: 'They're OK. Let's celebrate them,' it's a healthy community celebration."
Anyone is welcome to join in, Mijimberi said, the only requirements are a bike and a helmet.
Participants meet at Peace Park at 10.30am then head to the secret painting place to prepare.
