Two hundred naked cyclists rode through Southampton to promote cycling and reduced dependency on oil. This followed an earlier ride in Portsmouth. UK. 11th June 2011
Friday 11th of June did not enjoy the 'flaming' weather that tradition would have it. Instead it was a bit cold. But this did not deter the 200 or so cyclists, environmentalists and naturists who met at the top end of Southampton Common to strip off and cycle into the town centre en masse. This followed an earlier ride in Portsmouth. Rob Jordan, a local IT specialist, organised the ride as a part of the #WorldNakedBikeRide, a global initiative to publicise cycling safety and dependency on oil.
