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 2023 was on a hot, sunny day, which always brings out large turnout of riders and big crowds. We always expect to see over 1,000 riders but this year was massive! The traditional date for the ride is the second Saturday in June, so join us on Saturday 8th June 2024.

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

Bike Week
WNBR London is part of Bike Week – an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Bike Week first took place in 1923! It was, and always has been, a great opportunity to highlight the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, with a core aim of getting people to give cycling a go all over the UK. Whether it’s for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, a trip to the local shops or just to visit friends – cycling is for everyday, for everyone.


Well, WNBR London 2023 was massive. It was a hot, sunny day, with a huge turnout of riders. The traditional date for the ride is the second Saturday in June, so save the date: Saturday 8th June 2024.

You don’t need to sign up to participate in WNBR London. You just need to be in the right place at the right time with a bike to ride. You are invited to register your interest on our Facebook events so that we can see how popular they are and you can invite all your friends to join you.

You can view the locations on this map.

You need to be ready and in line to leave at the “Ride” time. Some locations are suitable for socialising. The “Gather” time indicates the earliest you can arrive. If it is a short time before departure that means there is nowhere to gather and you should get there just in time to depart.

The usual, highly popular start in Hyde Park is yet again not available for WNBR London as the areas we use will be closed for parking vehicles for a commercial activity. Wellington Arch has again been added as an alternative.

Reducing Covid-19 Risks

There is still a lot of coronavirus around, so participants should do their best to ensure they are not at risk and not spreading from the virus. Nobody should ride if they have symptoms or have had a recent positive test. Social contact should be minimised.

WNBR London takes place on the public streets of London. Nobody can control the actions or behaviours of the public. Participants should endeavour to avoid crowds and interactions with strangers.

Flag-making and afterparty

There will be a clothing-optional flag-making meet up on the eve of the ride at a pub and an afterparty at a London club.




Please Help Us Make It Happen

The ride is made possible by volunteer helpers and generous donations from our participants. Please join the collective or offer us your help. Please Contact Us if you can help with Marshalling, First Aid, Bodypainting, Sound Systems, Publicity, Fundraising etc.

No one is paid for running WNBR London, but we do have some significant expenses like the professional security team, radio comms hire, road closure fees, website, insurance, printing, marshals’ ID, etc.
