Biking culture is huge in London, with cafes dedicated to bike repair, the introduction of Boris bikes, main biking events at the Olympics and measures taken by the government to learn from bike-friendly Holland's town planning. Even Kate and Wills enjoy a spin around Kensington Palace on their custom-made tandem bike, although it's unlikely they'll be disrobing to participate in one of London's strangest biking events, the World Naked Bike Ride, which takes place every June, when thousands of riders wearing a little body paint at most, take to the streets.

 

The purpose of the bike ride is to highlight the issue of dependency on oil and cars in cities and to promote a healthy body image as riders of all shapes and sizes take part. Most riders choose the slightly more uncomfortable option of riding totally naked, but you don't have to bare all to participate and many riders wear underwear or accessories such as feather boas, or cover themselves in body paint. Public nudity is usually illegal in London, but police relax regulations for the race. The political aspect of the ride is balanced with the joyous nature of the event, but is an important part of promoting safer biking measures in the UK.

 

The race is quite a sight to witness, not just because of the rude appendages on show, but also due to the creativity of the participants. The ride draws a mix of bohemians, hippies and hipsters, as well as regular riders who just want to feel a bit more 'free'; as such, many bikes have been decorated and embellished with sound systems and events take place along the cycle route, including body art parties, mobile discos and temporary bars and food stands. 

 

There is a definite sense of camaraderie during the ride and despite Londoners' reputation for being uptight about nudity, citizens have generally been receptive to the race and view it with a good dose of bawdy humour. However the ride has had its detractors, who believe that public nudity is shameful and inappropriate, although this hasn't stopped the event from occurring, much to the delight of thousands of closeted nudists, it would seem.

 

If you want to participate and think you have the balls to take part, the ride starts at Hyde Park, and you will need to register beforehand. It's definitely recommended to get into the swing of things and add some accessories to your bike and 'bare as much as you dare'. If you want to stay somewhere close by, so you know you'll have clothes when you need them, there are plenty of hotels in the nearby area. The Ramada Hyde Park offers comfortable 4-star accommodation. Hyde Park Court Hotel offers very reasonable rooms just north of the park. Darlington Hyde Park Hotel also offers affordable rates and tasteful, traditional style rooms, and Shaftesbury Hyde Park International offers stylish modern rooms at the north edge of the park.
