World Naked Bike Ride

A shoot with a difference! The World Naked Bike Ride is 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 each year. So let's document it! (And avoid being too voyeuristic, please).

There are various starting points throughout the day, so we'll cover the one starting from King's Cross.

We'll meet at the Parcel Yard till 2ish - it's the pub inside King's Cross station, and the entrance is up the stairs to the right of platforms 9-11 - and then join the race from there.

Please ensure I have your phone number so I can stay in touch with you, as it's bound to be crowded!

We'll meet in a pub afterwards. Please pay in cash on the day, and my number if you need it is 07944 861414.

(Is this a bit too risqué for this group?)

    A difficult route for Chantal to try and sort out, but she shown through at the end where lots of posing was captured! Great job.

    Yes - what a laugh on those buses! And the walk through Whitehall was also entertaining ...

    Uploaded a few photos but most of them would have to be severely censored!

      I wrote 2ish - we wait for latecomers to arrive. We did wait for you, as we didn't know you decided not to join us.

      June 14, 2014

  • Chantal

    The pub is at the top of the stairs next to platforms 9-11; we'll meet in the conservatory area in the middle of the pub.

    Looking at the west website, the riders converge at Westminster Bridge. Might be worth heading there perhaps.

    June 14, 2014

    • Chantal

      We will be following the cyclists along their route, Peter.

    Granary Square looks pretty photogenic when I looked it up!

    June 14, 2014

    • Chantal

      It is - I've actually used it for a dance shoot before!

  • Farnz

    I've been coerced into helping a group of friends get to understand their cameras (it's taken a long time to be able to get everyone in one place) and will be shooting at a different location but I might be able to meet up with you afterwards.

    Chantal, the WNBR site says that they're setting off from the different starting points at 3pm. Pete. :-)

    June 14, 2014

    • Chantal

      We'll be getting people as they're getting ready to get started.

    I expect to be on the road in Portugal, Chantal. Not quite a Portuguese thing, but I'll keep my eyes open.

    May 9, 2014

    • Chantal

      Dang, you're right - Portugal hasn't done one since 2012. Tsk.

      because is not allowed to be naked in the streets.

      June 9, 2014

  • Chantal

    So, I'm guessing this isn't too risqué for the group after all! :)

    Disappointed to miss this multi-facetted photo opportunity, Chantal, but I'm not in London that day. :(

    May 9, 2014

    • Chantal

      Ah, that's a shame! :( There are Naked Bike Rides around the country on various days in case you cross paths with one of them?

      And indeed! "Glamour 101"? :)

    Remember to focus on the eyes!!!

    4 · May 8, 2014

    • Chantal

      *laughs* Yup, it'll be a day to work on "creative" photos, for sure!

      I'm planning to shoot raw. Pete.
