Did you notice anything unusual on your Saturday stroll around the city? Spot a bare bum or two? Maybe it was a hundreds-of-naked-people-on-wheels kind of unusual? 

Well, we have answers. The 2022 World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) took place on Saturday at eight different London locations, with the grand finale at Westminster Bridge bringing all of the birthday suits together in one gloriously nudey spectacle.

But it wasn’t just for fun (or for exercise). The WNBR is an organised pants-free protest against fossil fuels, that also happens to promote body positivity. What’s not to love? 

To sum up the occasion, we’ve picked some of the absolute best photographs from this nude-tastic event. From bodypaint protests and fancy dress, to wacky helmets and even a cycling dog (also naked), Londoners went all out. Check them out below.

Feeling the FOMO? London is hosting another naked bike ride in Romford on August 8, setting off from Bedfords Park at noon and wrapping up at around 4.30pm.
