Putting a Stop to Human's Indecent Exposure to Pollution

With all the cars, lorries, and mopeds pumping out fumes every second of the day the world is one polluted place. It not only damages the planet, but our health as well.

Many people believe that cycling should be the way of the future, as it is the only way we will get clean fresh air to breathe again. But words very rarely prompt action. If you want to get noticed, you have to be a bit bolder.

That's why each year, thousands of people across the world take to the streets of their local cities, and make a protest ride, sans clothing. These daring individuals who bike in the buff are trying to raise awareness of of issues such as cyclist safety, reducing oil dependency, and saving the planet.

The London Naked Bike Ride is due to take place on the 8th June, and you are invited to take part. All are welcome, no matter your age or sex. It doesn't just have to be cyclists either; roller skaters, rollerbladers, and skateboarders can join in too.

And how naked is naked, you ask? It is entirely up to you. The dress code is 'bare as you dare'. If you're brave enough to go au naturel, then great, but if not don't worry. Do whatever feels comfortable. Body painting, customising your bike, and other forms of creative expression is strongly encouraged.

There will be six starting points for the nine mile course:

Marble Arch - 2.30pm
Regents Park, Cumberland Green - 2.30pm
Kings Cross, Granary Square - 2.30pm
Clapham Junction, Grant Road - 2.45pm
West Norwood, Knights Hill - 12pm
Tower Hill - 2.30pm

Everyone will finish at Wellington Arch.
