Put this day in your diary…
No need to get an outfit ready just a bike!
Saturday 14 June 2008
(For those who don’t live in London there are also rides in 60 cities all over the world the same day in N.hemisphere and S.Hemisphere March 8th (3 wks)…so check out the website)…
It is as bare as you dare… lots of people are clothed and even more are naked… you can go anywhere in between… I recommend half naked with silly clothes, wigs, hats face paints on…. so you’re not naked but still in the spirit.
It is so much fun….
It is a protest against oil dependency… roads not being safe for cyclists, climate change, prudishness, clothes, socks, anything you want really…
It is great fun.
A day you’ll never forget…and it is Legal (it is not illegal to be naked in England).
The ride draws attention to the elegant simplicity of the bicycle, highlights the vulnerability of riders in traffic and celebrates the power and individuality of our bodies.
Last year Nick and I went along with 1500 other people.
