Thousands of Londoners are daring to bare this Saturday as the free World Naked Bike Ride returns for its fourteenth year.

If you can’t bear the thought of public nudity, consider this a public service announcement. But if you’ve always fancied taking a bike ride in the buff, well, here’s your chance.

Every summer, this naked revolution takes to the streets in order to protest car culture and simultaneously promote body positivity. These people aren’t just making tits of themselves for the sake of it. It’s a deeply serious, important, legitimate event, you see.

Nothing funny about the human body.

We’re hoping the forecasted rain holds off for these ballsy eco-warriors. Although we doubt it’ll dampen their spirits too much!

Absolute nutters.

It’s free to join in and, while nudity is encouraged, you’re welcome to take part wearing whatever makes you feel comfortable. Expect lashings of body paint and props aplenty. (You are asked not to strip off until you get to the rendezvous point though!)

All you need to do is turn up at one of the following locations with a bike (and a sense of humour):
