The WNBR is peaceful, imaginative and fun protest against oil dependency and car culture. As well as being a celebration of the bicycle and also a celebration of the power and individuality of the human body. A symbol of the vulnerability of the cyclist in traffic. The world's biggest naked protest: over fifty cities and thousands of riders participate worldwide, including around 3,000 in the UK.
In 2010, rides take place across the UK during the week commencing June 11th, and weather permitting several thousand riders are expected.

Last year I was lucky enough to help steward the event bathed in bright sunshine I donned my birthday suit and joined over 1000 naked riders as we cruised the streets of our great capital. From penny farthings to fixies, Bikertons to bone-shakers all are welcome and it is a truly liberating day out for all!

Last year I was armed with my trusty camera and took some great shots (see below) and this year Ill be riding my 1960's Pashley tandem – so if anyone wants to be my stoker do please drop me an email
