World Naked Bike Ride – WNBR London, 9th June 2018

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 15th annual WNBR London Naked Bike Ride will be on Saturday 9th June 2018. It’s worthy, it’s free, it’s fun, it’s legal and it’s making the world a better place for everyone.

We plan to run 6 start choices: Tower Hill, Regents Park, West Norwood, Hyde Park, Clapham Junction, and Kew Bridge.

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 – 95 years ago! 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. Bike Week 2018 takes place from 9th-17th June.


Please Help Us Make It Happen

The ride is made possible by volunteer helpers and generous donations from our participants. Please join the collective or offer us your help. Please Contact Us if you can help with Marshalling, First Aid, Bodypainting, Sound Systems, Publicity, Fundraising etc.

No one is paid for running WNBR London, but we do have some significant expenses like radio comms hire, road closure fees, website, insurance, printing, marshals’ ID, etc.

It’s got to be worth a fiver or more!
