World Naked Bike Ride London 2009


Well I am afraid that I, err, am doing something else on 13 June. But a naked bike ride in London? The way our weather can change? Surely not an advisable pastime!!!!

Date: Saturday 13 June 2009
Time: 3pm assembly, for 3.30pm departure
Location: South-east corner of Hyde Park, by the Achilles statue, near Hyde Park Corner

See http://wiki.worldnakedbikeride.org/wiki/London for detailed info.

2009 will be the sixth year of London's participation in the World Naked Bike Ride. Numbers of riders have risen each year - from 58 riders in 2004 we had 1,000+ last year.

On Saturday 13 June 2009 the ride will return to the streets of London allowing riders to see the many sights of this remarkable city from the comfort of their own bikes/skates. The ride is easy and upbeat, and riders decorate their bodies and bikes with messages of protest against oil dependency, obsessive car culture, vulnerability for cyclists & pedestrians and to promote the understanding of body freedom. The assembly time and traditional city centre route are again planned. Other UK rides will happen on 12, 13 and 14 June.

That just sounds uncomfortable (for riders and spectators!) and not to mention unsanitary.

No need to worry about embarrasing butt sweat stains on your shorts!

Dez, I am so shocked (or is that Heath?). No second thought to what it would do to the poor old saddle :-)
