The stripped down event is an annual protest aimed at celebrating the human body and campaigning against dependency on cars.

The protest saw naked cyclists riding over Westminster Bridge on Saturday afternoon. Riders set off from different locations across London, including Clapham Junction, West Norwood and Hyde Park.

The free event is a global protest movement, with demonstrators joining together to protest oil dependency and car culture, as well as shine a light on the vulnerability of cyclists.

Participants were able to choose between a short ride or a longer one with all routes eventually merging onto a circuit that took cyclists from Westminster Bridge to the finishing point at Hyde Park. Riders could choose whether to bike in the buff with those taking part encouraged to decorate themselves in body paint or wear fancy dress.
