The World Naked Bike Ride in London ‘gives people the chance to prove that the bike is a great alternative mode of transportation for travelling the city and a celebration of the human body’. Although not a protest, it is designed to also raise awareness of pollution and the politics around fossil fuels. Full or partial nudity is encouraged, as well as creative expression, but is not mandatory. Groups started at various points around London before joining up into a large group and circling the city and eventually converging on the Wellington Arch. The event drew such a large crowd on the ‘north’ end of Westminster Bridge that it inadvertently created a traffic free zone! This is illustrated by the second image below, with photographers jockeying for clearer views and spilling out into the road. A quick re-positioning allowed for clearer images as the cyclists crossed into south London, with another move catching them heading down The Mall towards Buckingham Palace.
