Note WNBR is NOT a Time's Up! Event: Text below taken from the World Naked Bike Ride wiki:

Every year, in cities around the world, people ride bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body.

The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture.

Most rides in 2011 will take place around the following dates:

On January 31, 2011, members of Time's Up!, dressed in Valentine's red and as officers of the New York Peace Department (N.Y.P.D.), gathered on the Williamsburg and Manhattan Bridges to give cyclists "Token Tickets of Love" for braving both the weather and antagonistic conditions to ride their bikes to and from work. While the NYPD gave out over 1,400 tickets to cyclists over the first two weeks of January alone, Times Up! believes the City should be thanking cyclists for riding their bikes which benefits the economy, environment and community.

Saturday, May 24th, 2008. A show and tell of human powered vehicles for every need and curiosity. Come see (and bring) commuter bikes, cargo bikes, trailers, Dutch kid-carriers, velomobiles, upright semi-recumbents, and innovative components, accessories, and clothes that demonstrate how cycling is real transportation. Check back soon for more information.

Contact Aaron if you are planning to bring a unique and/or utilitarian bike to show off at this event.

On Friday, September 21, 2007, more than 20 groups reclaimed parking spots all over New York City and turned them into creative community parks in recognition of Park(ing) Day—an annual, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into public parks known as park(ing) spaces.
