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.

You can find out loads of info on our new WNBRLondon.UK website:

Things you might need to know about the London ride

Getting involved

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!
