Next Saturday the 11th of June, more than 1000 people are expected to participate in the London Naked Bike Ride. Should this number be achieved, it will officially go down in history as the largest naked protest in London.
The worldwide event is staged for many reasons – it’s a demonstration against oil dependency, a call to protect the environment, a celebration of the human body, a call for safer cycling lanes and facilities and a campaign to encourage more people to use bikes to get around in cities.
Similar events will take place in Brighton, Manchester, York and Southampton; and further away in Edinburgh and in US cities San Francisco and Chicago.
Although the idea is to be completely naked, you are not obliged to strip off to participate. Bare as much as you dare, try bodypainting or fancy dress if nudity is not your thing!
Come and show your support for the environment, cyclists and nudity by bringing your bike, skates or skateboard to Hyde Park on Saturday the 11th of June and prepare to set off at 3pm.
