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.
The next ride is provisionally planned for Saturday 14th August 2021

The WNBR London Collective will continue to observe Government restrictions as well as examining evidence and best advice. Unless the Government’s unlock schedule changes, a ride of over 30 people will not be allowed until 21st June at the earliest, so the usual timing of the second Saturday in June will not be possible. To be sure about the ride, a final go/no go decision will be taken after that stage has been reached. WNBR London plans to make the call on 14th July to allow one month to publicise and prepare for a ride on 14th August. If things are still not safe in August, there will be one last chance to delay until September before the cold weather sets in.
As there will not be a ride on the usual date, WNBR London will again put on a programme of #NotTheWorldNakedBikeRide substitute events.
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
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.
