World Naked Bike Ride Comes To London This Weekend

  • by

A naked bike ride is being held across London this Saturday (June 10).

The World Naked Bike Ride in London has taken place annually since 2004, with the exception of 2020 when the ride was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Tomorrow (June 10), the ride starts at points in Clapham Junction, Croydon, Deptford, Kew Bridge, Regents Park, Tower Hill, and Wellington Arch.

The bike ride has been alerted to the risk of a disruptive demonstration in Victoria Park, so it’s unable to provide a start in the park this year.

Tower Hamlets Council has asked that riders start from Tower Hill instead.

Other alternative starts include Wellington Arch and Deptford.

Below are the timings and meeting points across London

The weather is predicted to be hot and sunny with a chance of showers, so riders are encouraged to bring water, sun cream, and a waterproof bag for their valuables.

The most popular start at Hyde Park is not available this year, as The Royal Parks are closing the area so they can park vehicles for a commercial venture.

As a result, the start will be at Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner.

There is also an accessible option for riders who are less able to do the full ride.

The routes merge into a 1,000+ rider peloton; last year, the ride had 1,003 riders.

The World Naked Bike Ride in London has taken place annually since 2004, with Organises have reminded riders to be “well behaved” as the aim of the bike ride is to be a “peaceful, lawful, campaign”.

This year there will also be an afterparty, which is now sold out at its 350 capacity.
