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.
In London, NakedBike Ride starts in the afternoon at five different spots: Tower Hill, Regents Park, West Norwood, Hyde Park, Clapham Junction, and Kew Bridge. Riders can choose between a shorter or a longer one. All routes merge to Westminster Bridge and take riders to their finish point at Hyde Park.
Riders can decorate themselves with body paint or wear some fancy dress or funny costumes following the event’s carnival-spirit. Naked Bike ride welcomes all kinds of bikes: fixies, electric bikes, tandems or chariots.
