Last Sunday I photographed a unique and surreal event, The Bristol World Naked Bike Ride. On a lazy drizzly Sunday I headed to the very apt Full Moon and Attic bar in Stokes Croft, where the annual ride sets off. Hundreds of riders braved the weather and bared all to take part in the seven-mile round cycle weaving it's way through some of Bristol's busiest roads. The bike ride is part of a global movement that raises awareness around environmental issues and highlights the vulnerability of cyclists on Bristol roads.
With You Can Leave Your Hat On pumping, body paint smeared and bare bottoms seated, the atmosphere was electric and there was quite the crowd. As cyclist crowded back to The full Moon it felt completely normal to be surrounded by naked cyclist and after a couple of pints I considered (for a second) taking part myself next year.
Total respect for everyone involved.
Warning- contains nudity!
