Sharing is caring!

The famous World Naked Bike Ride London event took place on the 10th of June for the 100th time with cycling activists taking part from all over London.

The annual event aims to promote cycling and the reduction of fossil fuels, sustainability and body freedom by encouraging everyday cycling for everyone.

Bike Week first took place in 1923 and now happens in many cities globally as people participate in performing peaceful and respectful environmental protest by riding their bikes naked.

Naked Bike Riding to reduce Carbon Emissions

Many participants embed cycling in their every lives and care deeply about climate change and carbon emissions to make London a greener city. Cyclists make this clear by featuring slogans on their body canvases to highlight their key concerns and we’ve captured some of them with their permission:

This event is affiliated to WNBR UK and the global World Naked Bike Ride network and you can find more info about WNBR happening around the world in this list of rides.

Speaking with one of the organisers at the event, the rather hot weather of 30 Celsius degree did lead to some participants not making it to the finish line at Wellington Arch near Hyde Park. A clear indicator that rising temperatures can become problematic and highlighting the event’s mission to create awareness of reducing carbon emissions to curb climate change.

The World Naked Bike Ride is clearly not a race, but a community coming together to highlight their environmental concerns. All participants were very open about the mission and respectful in conveying it.

To put it in the WNBR London’s own words:

The annual WNBR London Naked Bike Ride is worthy, free, fun, legal and it’s making the world a better place for everyone.
