London Naked Bike Ride

11:00am – 6:00pm
Free

London Naked Bike Ride is an annual nude cycling event in protest against car culture and oil dependency.  Protesters will ride naked through the city streets with slogans painted on their backs including ‘Burn Fat Not Oil’, ‘Less Gas More Ass’ or (in our opinion) the best ‘Energy Is Renude’.

For the 2022 event, organisers are planning to return to the traditional event date in June, although this may change closer to the date depending on how this pandemic thing is going. Due to COVID-19, the event was cancelled in 2020, and in 2021 it was shifted to mid-August.

2021 London Naked Bike Ride Starting Points and Times

There will be eight starting points: Tower Hill, Regents Park, Croydon, Hyde Park, Clapham Junction, Kew Bridge, Victoria Park and Deptford, and an accessible start point near Waterloo.

Full nudity is optional; some people cycle in their underwear for personal modesty/chafing reasons. But if you’re brave enough to bare all, remember it’s considered bad form to disrobe before the start of the ride.
