London Naked Bike Ride 2009There's a good reason why professional cyclists wear lycra: to hold their privates in the right place so as to avoid unnecessary (not to mention painful) chaffing (or entrapment) with the saddle. For naturists and exhibitionists who are prepared to risk getting all tangled up when pedalling on two wheels, the London Naked Bike Ride is right up your street. Starting by the Achilles Statue at Hyde Park Corner, more than 1,000 people are set to take off their clothes and ride around the capital nude to raise awareness of the need for more tolerance of bicycles on the roads of the city. Part of a unified world event, the Naked Bike Ride does make exemptions for those a bit too shy to reveal all, with a "go as bare as you dare" policy implemented above a stringent cry for nakedness. Part of London Sustainability Week, the actual ride is easy and relaxed, with participants often decorating their torsos and bikes with environmental protests against oil dependency and car culture. Simultaneous rides in the UK will take place in Brighton, Manchester, York and Southampton. For more information and the bare necessities for this event go to www.worldnakedbikeride.org.uk.

 

About Hyde Park

Technically two different parks, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are in practical terms one huge, merging expanse. The 'split' dates back to 1728 when Queen Caroline, wife of George II, took almost 300 acres from Hyde Park to form Kensington Gardens. The 350 acres that remained has become one of London's best-loved parks. More about Hyde Park
