World Naked Bike Ride London -11 June 2016

Following on from Trooping the Colour, was an ‘altogether’ different event. The World Naked Bike Ride in London is a friendly protest against car culture, pollution and oil dependency, and gives people the chance to prove that the bike is a great alternative mode of transportation for travelling the city. Full or partial nudity is encouraged as well as creative expression, but is not mandatory. The event attracts all shapes and sizes, ages and genders. Groups start at various collection points around London before converging in Westminster and riding a looped route to finish at the Wellington Arch. At both locations covered here – Westminster Bridge and the Wellington Arch – the numbers of cyclists, photographers and general public were so great as to block traffic. Many of the drivers caught up in the mayhem probably couldn’t believe what they were seeing!
