The first official WNBR was held in Spain in 2004 and was designed as a protest society's reliance on oil-based transport and car culture in general. Since then the event has spread to more than 50 cities worldwide. Brazil is one of the most enthusiastic nations when it comes to nude cycling - the warm weather probably helps - but colder cities like Vancouver and Toronto have staged successful WNBR events.

You don't have to be completely naked to take part in a WNBR, but the organisers do like riders to be creative. Many are completely starkers - to use a popular British slang word - but others are partially clothed and some use body paint to cover strategic areas.

This year's UK rides are taking place between 1 Jun – 07 July. The London ride - one of the biggest - will be held on 9 June. To register as a rider or find the closest event to you click here. If you aren't brave enough to take part go along and cheer those who are.
