Naked Bike Ride

I did see a flyer mentioning a “Naked Bike Ride” in Brighton but I didn't pay that much attention.

To my astonishment yesterday while getting a breath of fresh air outside the conference hall at least 1000 cyclists in various states of undress rode past along the sea front. I believe it was a protest about traffic and climate change.

There were Police cyclists (in full uniform of course) escorting them.

Since it was warm and very sunny I hope they slapped plenty of sun cream on!

As a 'rude Tory boy' I have to say: surely, not more bollocks on your blog John? :)

Hi Mike

I see you must have got out your Magnifying glass!

Don't need one to see all the balls on your blog John.

Hi Mike

They were just letting their hair down I suppose.

Doesn't it make you proud that we live in a country where people can do this kind of thing without fear of prosecution?

Hi John

I'm one of the organisers of the Brighton Naked Bike Ride. Can you send us a hi-res copy of your photo(s?) I really like the one you've posted here as it gives a sense of the size and colourfulness of the event.

Please send to

Best wishes

Hi Mike
Very true but I think all this was well organised and agreed with Police beforehand.

So please don't cycle down High Street North naked with all your dangly bits flowing. I don’t think Boris will like it.

Hi Nick

Will do! need to check which pc/lap top and connect.
