The world naked bike ride returned for another year in London today, as folks across the capital pedaled their wares in protest against a culture of oil dependency.

Since its inception in 2004, the great undressed have ridden across London in a celebration of the bare body, to draw attention to the problems with ‘car culture’ and to defend the rights of cyclists.

UPDATE: most of the instagram posts originally embedded in this article have since been censored by instagram. Apologies.
