World Naked Bike Ride sees thousands of men and women cycle through London and Brighton nude
Hundreds of cyclists will strip off and pedal through London completely naked in an annual protest campaigning against car culture and celebrating the human body. The World Naked Bike Ride in London will see scores of nude cycling fans parading through the streets of the capital on Saturday. The quirky event is part of a global movement, with nude rides scheduled to take place from Chicago to Canterbury. The group is protesting dependency on oil and cars and campaigning for more rights and safety regulations for cyclists which, they argue, is a particularly pressing issue for London. They are all clogging up our streets because they are paid to be there and someone else is picking up the costs.

As the ride is a fast moving event, we recommend that press "embed" themselves in the ride. We can put you in contact with robust rickshaw pedicabs that can carry you along with the ride at a modest fee. Please get in touch. We welcome all press to attend the World Naked Bike Ride events in the UK, but most rides require that press comply with the ride's local photography policy see London for an example policy. We have riders of various backgrounds available for interview before, during and after the ride.
The annual event aimed to protest car culture and celebrate the human body. World Naked Bike Ride takes place every year, in many cities of the world, where people ride their bikes naked to celebrate cycling and their bodies. People strip off their clothes because a naked ride is supposed to symbolize the vulnerability of cyclists on the road. Hundreds of cyclists ride naked every year to make a statement and to demonstrate body freedom.
