World Naked Bike Ride London 2012 Part I

“What’s this all about?”  This was the most common question I heard asked as I rode around.  The naked bike ride means many different things to many different people. But for me, it’s a protest against the dominance of car culture in London, and elsewhere.

The ride also happens to be a hell of a lot of fun and it was good to see familiar faces from previous rides and meet new people.  It’s funny how motorists notice us when we’re naked yet when we put on clothes,  it’s as if we’re invisible.

There seemed to be record numbers on the ride but I heard from someone who counted it was only 800. Anyone have any accurate info on that?

Many thanks to all who attended.

  2. While looking for a tube station, ran across this surprise event. I’m sure it took many moons to plan. A bit of luck when the dREARy weather broke and the sun shone where it hadn’t shone for a few days. About a thousand riding is my guess. Not to many got behind and missed the turn where I was located but overall bottom line was the event wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.
