World Naked Bike Ride – WNBR London

This site provides information about the World Naked Bike Ride in London. If you continue you will see some non-sexual images of naked bike riders. It is a popular, peaceful, legal, public protest on the streets of London but parental guidance is advised to ensure the beneficial intent of the ride is understood and well received.

WNBR London – riding annually since 2004

WNBR London 2024 was another great success. You can watch our annual video in the blog. We counted and accounted for 1,069 riders, although we know we missed several more. It was a cool, partially sunny day, and the centre of London was locked down due to unrelated major protests and counter demonstrations. The traditional date for the ride is the second Saturday in June, so the provisional date for the next ride is Saturday 14th June 2025.

WNBR London is a not-for-profit, unincorporated association. It is a membership organisation, defined by its constitution. The campaign seeks to draw attention to its themes by being a fun, well-behaved, lawful spectacle that delights the public and attracts media attention. It is affiliated to WNBR UK and to the global World Naked Bike Ride network. It is not connected to other protest, cycling or naturist organisations.

TimeOut London August 2021

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

Cleaner environment, safer roads, healthier lifestyles, better attitudes!

The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists and is a protest against car culture. WNBR is a worldwide campaign with a number of linked themes.

Its objectives are to:

  • protest against the global dependency on oil
  • curb car culture
  • obtain real rights for cyclists
  • demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists on city streets
  • celebrate body freedom
