Cre­at­ing a ding dong about car de­pen­dency

HUN­DREDS of demon­stra­tors stripped off and em­braced pedal power for what is thought to be the world’s big­gest nude protest.

Cy­clists gath­ered and bared all for the London leg of the World Naked Bike Ride in a protest against car cul­ture and oil de­pen­dency on Satur­day, June 10.

The route took rid­ers through the cap­i­tal and fea­tured seven dif­fer­ent start points at Tower Hill, Re­gents Park, Kings Cross, West Nor­wood, Hyde Park, Clapham Junc­tion, and Kew Bridge.

Rid­ers chose from short leisurely rides or longer, harder routes into the cen­tre of the cap­i­tal be­fore they merged to­gether into a 1,000 rider pelo­ton.

Peo­ple of all dif­fer­ent shapes and sizes were en­cour­aged to strip off and adorn them­selves in body paint for the cause, and this fan­tas­tic se­lec­tion of pho­tos shows both naked and semi­clothed cy­clists em­brace the chal­lenge.
