Shed those pesky clothes, London; The Naked Bike Ride is here. It’s not just a pilgrimage for the nudists and naturists out there, everyone’s invited. That means you!
There’s seven starting points across the city. Participants then peddle with their peloton to the meet up points to ride as nature intended through central London.
Oh and then there’s a massive after party too (tickets from zilch up.) So all in looks fun and affordable!
