London World Naked Bike Ride
The World Naked Bike Ride is a global protest movement with rides in cities around the world, raising awareness of issues such as safety of cyclists on the road, reducing oil dependence and saving the planet. Let's make the planet great again!
WNBR’s themes 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
As well as promoting healthy life choices it can also be the best fun you can ever have on two wheels. The London ride has the excitement of a carnival, with big crowds to cheer it on. It is a "naked bike ride" but you can be "as bare as you dare" - body painting and fancy dress are welcome. It is fun, legal and all in a worthy cause.

Things you might need to know about the London ride
We hold monthly planning meetings before the ride: anyone is welcome to come along, and we reach decisions by consensus. We also rely on people to volunteer on the day, either as marshals, stewards, or first aiders. The more people we have to help out, the smoother the ride is for everyone. If you can help, please let us know!

Ride details - Saturday, 10th June 2023
The traditional date for the ride is the second Saturday in June, so join us on Saturday 10th June 2023.
The ride has been increasingly popular over the past 19 years, with its fun, attention-grabbing campaign for safer cycling along with healthier environment, lifestyles and behaviours. 2022 was another big ride, with 8 start groups merging into a spectacular rider peloton. Our clicker count was 1,003 riders - but we probably missed a lot of you.
The ride is made possible by volunteer helpers and generous donations from our participants. Please join the collective. No one
is paid for running WNBR London, but we do have some significant expenses like radio comms hire, road closure fees, insurance, printing, marshals' ID, etc.
