2009 will be the sixth year of London’s participation in the World Naked Bike Ride. Numbers of riders have risen each year – from 58 riders in 2004 we had 1,000+ last year.
On Saturday 13 June 2009 the ride will return to the streets of London allowing riders to see the many sights of this remarkable city from the comfort of their own bikes/skates. The ride is easy and upbeat, and riders decorate their bodies and bikes with messages of protest against oil dependency, obsessive car culture, vulnerability for cyclists & pedestrians and to promote the understanding of body freedom. The assembly time and traditional city centre route are again planned. Other UK rides will happen on 12, 13 and 14 June.
