Londoners dared to bare at the weekend during the country's largest annual nude protest: World Naked Bike Ride. The fleshy flotilla stopped traffic as it toured around the West End on a route that took in Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament, saluting Nelson's Column and Big Ben as they passed by. What they were protesting about ranged from cycle safety (more secure helmets?) to anti-fracking to the freedom to strip off in public on a hot summer's day. Intrepid Londonist photographer Jose Farinha stripped off to join the ride and covered it — using a long lens, of course.
