Hold onto your Helmets for this Cheeky Cycle

This Saturday (10 June) sees the return of the World Naked Bike Ride, when more than 1,000 cyclists take to London’s streets wearing nothing but their helmets and a smile.

The annual event was launched in 2004 as a processional protest addressing cycling safety, oil dependency, car culture and to celebrate body freedom.

And if you fancy baring your bits on your bike, it’s completely free to attend - just turn up with some wheels and your finest birthday suit. If you’re feeling a little more shy, you can take advantage of the “as bare as you dare” policy, by adding some body paint or a pair of jazzy undercrackers.

Those who would prefer to watch, wearing actual clothes, can do so from eight starting points at different times, including Clapham Junction, Deptford, Kew Bridge, Tower Hill, Victoria Park and Waterloo.

All routes meet for the grand finale at Wellington Arch, Hyde Park at 5.30pm.

And there is a ticketed, clothes-optional after party at Electrowercz in Angel for participants, who are advised not to hop back on the saddle if they’ve celebrated a bit too enthusiastically. And they might need a cardi and socks for the ride home...

World Naked Bike Ride, Various London starting locations. FREE. 10 June
