Inside naked bike ride as brave cyclists strip off for nude protest

A number of residents were bracing the weather with very little on as they took part in a naked cycle ride in protest over safety for cyclists.

More than 50 naked cyclists were spotted peddling through Coventry on Saturday to call for drivers to be more aware of cyclists on the road.

The drivers in Coventry were certainly noticing the cyclists as dozens of bare bums were on display for all motorists and residents walking the street.

Participants could cycle naked, be part-clothed or fully-clothed campaign during the two-hour ride but most decided to bare all for the cause.

The Coventry protest is one of 15 happening in the UK with the events being held under the World Naked Bike Ride Tour.

Other events have also been held in Cambridge, Brighton, and Cardiff with the major event happening in London on August 14.

The ride is not only to demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists but to also protest against car culture.

Joe added: "Is [your] journey in a car worth it? Could you walk or take the bus?

"The world seems to be very focused on cars, particularly in Coventry, and I think that is something that needs to change.

"There are signs that things are starting to improve as the council are putting in bike lanes, but there’s still a long way to go."
