World Naked Bike Ride – WNBR London

This site provides information about the World Naked Bike Ride in London. If you continue you will see some non-sexual images of naked bike riders. It is a popular, peaceful, legal, public protest on the streets of London but parental guidance is advised to ensure the beneficial intent of the ride is understood and well received.

The 16th annual WNBR London Naked Bike Ride will be in the afternoon of Saturday 8th June 2019. It’s worthy, it’s free, it’s fun, it’s legal and it’s making the world a better place for everyone.

Cleaner environment, safer roads, healthier lifestyles, better attitudes!

The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists and is a protest against car culture. WNBR is a worldwide campaign with a number of linked themes.

Its objectives are to:

  • protest against the global dependency on oil
  •  curb car culture
  •  obtain real rights for cyclists
  •  demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists on city streets
  •  celebrate body freedom

Bike Week
WNBR London is part of Bike Week – an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Bike Week first took place in 1923! It was, and always has been, a great opportunity to highlight the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, with a core aim of getting people to give cycling a go all over the UK. Whether it’s for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, a trip to the local shops or just to visit friends – cycling is for everyday, for everyone.
