Brighton Naked Bike Ride 2019
Join us for a naked "protestival" ride through the city — followed by a refreshing sea swim and beach front after-party!
Every year since 2006, Brighton has joined World Naked Bike Rides around the world to celebrate cycling and the human body. The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture.
Brighton's World Naked Bike Ride will take place on Sunday 9 June 2019. This will be our 14th ride. Up to 1,000 riders have taken part in previous peak years (2014 and 2010). As of the 2007 ride, following negotiations with Sussex Police, full nudity is permitted at the event.
The event is one of several UK and worldwide rides happening around the same time, including nearby London, Portsmouth and Southampton. It is scheduled to allow people to take part in other rides as well, if they like.
The ride forms part of the national Bike Week.
