London and Brighton Naked Bike Ride

A peaceful, imaginative and fun protest against oil dependency and car culture. A celebration of the bicycle and also a celebration of the power and individuality of the human body. A symbol of the vulnerability of the cyclist in traffic. The world’s biggest naked protest: 50+ cities and thousands of riders participate worldwide, including around 3,000 in the UK in 2011.

I only came across this event by accident and decided to go at the last moment. I hired a chariot from Ryan at http://www.ecochariots.com/ , whose rider kept me up with the other cyclists for the whole event.

There was a lot of charities at the event, one of which I said I would mention. http://www.skatejam.org/
See the video for a description of what they do to help young kids out.

Met a lot of fun and interesting people and it was a pleasure to film. I was invited the next day to go down to Brighton to see the event there. It was raining on the Sunday, but I was surprised out how many people turned up.

All in all, a very fun and surreal experience.
