London Naked Bike Ride is an annual nude cycling event in protest against car culture and oil dependency. London 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’.
London Naked Bike Ride Starting Points and Times
There will be six starting points:
Tower Hill, Regents Park, West Norwood, Hyde Park, Clapham Junction, and Kew Bridge
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.
