Since its inception in 2004, the great undressed have ridden across London in a celebration of the bare body, to draw attention to the problems with ‘car culture’ and to defend the rights of cyclists.
Of course, it is not for the faint of heart: anyone wishing to participate with the ridden protest must have, ahem, the balls to cycle past London’s most famous landmarks in the nude. All routes will pass Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Whitehall, Parliament, Westminster Bridge, London Eye, Waterloo Bridge, Royal Courts of Justice, Covent Garden, The Mall and Wellington Arch, where the race finishes. Eye-catching nakedness, though, is much of the point; a remark on need for drivers to be vigilant of cyclists on the road.
Organisers are clear that covering up with body paint or underwear is acceptable, and that riders should only strip down to whatever level they are comfortable with. It’s expected around 1000 cyclists will take part.
Given the event is a fun, lively event, many people plump for colourful body art or fancy dress – and no matter what the weather is like (it’s set to be warm, if cloudy), slap on the suncream. Remember, don’t be a boob and avoid run-ins with police by only undressing at the beginning of the race, not before, and covering up as soon as the ride is over.
The ride follows a circular route that lasts for around nine miles, plus the starting leg from where you join.
It is a leisurely race that took around 2.5 hours to complete back in 2011.
