World Naked Bike Ride 2011 In Pictures

World Naked Bike Ride 2011 In Pictures

The eighth World Naked Bike Ride rolled through London on Saturday afternoon.

Fortunately, fine weather held out for the 1000+ liberated participants many of whose body paint might otherwise have been washed away. Anyone picking up a Cycle Hire bike this morning might have considered taking a pack of wet wipes with them as the sturdy steeds were much in evidence beneath bicycling bare buttocks.

As usual, it was a good natured ride celebrating cycling and the human form, whilst demonstrating its vulnerability - very few helmets were spotted - and protesting against car culture and oil dependency.

All photos sourced via the Londonist Flickrpool, with thanks.
