Naked people get a lot of attention — or so the people behind the World Naked Bike Ride are hoping. They’re protesting the pollution caused by fossil fuels by biking naked. The movement was founded in 2004; that’s the same year that Klaus -Töpfer, then executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme, published a study saying that a million species of plants and animals might disappear in the next 50 years due to the effects of climate change brought about by greenhouse gases. Since then, the World Naked Bike Ride and its environmental message have spread internationally. This is Houston’s second year to participate. Interested parties are encouraged to go “as bare as you dare.” Feel free to decorate yourself and your bike. 7 p.m. June 9 and June 16. Super Happy Fun Land, 3801 Polk.
