World Naked Bike Rides have taken place in London since 2004 - always on the second Saturday of June.
1000 people took part in the ride on Saturday 12th June. The weather was sunny and warm and there were over 1000 riders. The ride went from Hyde Park to The Tower of London (the non-circular route was due to the cross-rail works being done on Oxford Street/Tottenham Court Road). A pre-ride segment travelled from the near to Heathrow at the village of Sipson to Hyde Park (this segment had 17 riders).
1200 people took part in the ride on Saturday 13th June. It was a nice warm day, with a cool breeze, and the ride went from Hyde Park to Wellington Arch.
1000 people took part.
It was almost impossible to count the 1,000+ riders as they travelled the traditional 6 mile route through London on a beautiful, hazy, hot day. Crowds were highly supportive. This year was the first time The Royal Parks granted the ride official permission to assemble within Hyde Park. The route finished as usual at the Wellington Arch.
Over 700 people took the 2005 route through London on one of the hottest days of the year. Crowds were occasionally drunken (due to a World Cup football match), but mostly supportive.
Approximately 250 people rode for 6 miles (1.5 hours) on the busiest streets of London - the assembly and finish were both at Wellington Arch. The public was astonished, thrilled, and delighted.
Approximately 60 riders rode in Hyde Park for 30 minutes inside Hyde Park. The public who saw us was facinated and several cyclists spontaneously joined the ride.
