Just be on the road with the bike and let your soul and some other things dangle? Like every year, thousands of people cycled freely or very freely through the streets of London at the World Naked Bike Ride this weekend. The reason: to protest against car culture and to celebrate the glory of cycling and body positivity. Participation in the ride is completely free. Cyclists are only encouraged to ride without clothing or to adorn themselves with body paint including various messages and slogans or costumes. The World Naked Bike Ride is a global protest movement and rides take place in cities around the world. The ride in London has a carnival atmosphere that attracts huge crowds of cheering spectators and draws many participants.
