Participants of the ride were encouraged to take off their clothes but put safety first and wear a helmet, and while many cyclers opted for going commando, others preferred to sport glitter boobs, body paint and bizarre costumes.
Nude protests have taken place all over the globe, including in London, Brighton, Chicago, Mexico City, Toronto, Thessaloniki, etc.

Apparently there's a naked bike ride around London today…— Toby Tarrant (@tobytarrant) 9 июня 2018 г.

At one point, the controversial ride even collided with the Free Tommy Robinson March in London, which made Twitter explode:
The Free Tommy Robinson March has accidentally bumped into the World Naked Bike Ride event in London. What a time to be alive. pic.twitter.com/2YPf0uNO3L— Penelope Woodfall (@PWoodfall) 10 июня 2018 г.
The 'Free Tommy Robinson' protesters in London have inadvertently mingled with a Naked Cycle Ride and I keep laughing. https://t.co/4Fw5MWlXwt— SimonNRicketts (@SimonNRicketts) 9 июня 2018 г.
