On June 8, the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is back, and it’s more than just a cheeky spectacle. This global protest highlights the vulnerability of cyclists on city streets, advocates for body positivity, and calls for a reduction in our dependency on fossil fuels.

The What, Where, and When

Starting at 2:45pm, riders will gather at Grant Road (SW11 2NU), right in the heart of Clapham Junction. Whether you’re fully nude, in body paint, or opting for a quirky costume, you’re welcome—clothing is optional but shoes are a must for safety. The ride promises a fun and liberating experience for all participants, showcasing the strength of community spirit and shared goals.

The Bigger Picture

This year’s ride is not just about a fun day out. It’s a bold statement against car culture and the environmental damage it causes. The World Naked Bike Ride serves as a reminder of our vulnerability as cyclists and our need for safer streets. By stripping down, participants symbolically strip away the layers of pollution and traffic congestion, advocating for a cleaner, safer, and more sustainable urban environment.

Route and Revelry

After winding through the city, the ride concludes at the lively afterparty at Phantom Peak in Surrey Quays. Here, cyclists can enjoy the Naked Cabaret and other entertainment in a festival-like atmosphere, celebrating the ride’s success and the unity of its participants.
