Naked Bike Riders Take to Portsmouth's Streets Again

Published: 19th April 2014 21:06

 Portsmouth is once again joining the World Naked Bike Ride this year to raise awareness of bike safety and green issues.

The event takes place on the 24th May starting from the green opposite the Coffee Cup in Eastney at 2pm. 

Last year ,90 cyclists took part and followed the route around the south of the city. They were joined by four French cyclists who have said that this year they will be bringing more people with them to take part.

This will be the fourth time that the ride has been held in Portsmouth but organisers are looking for help for 2015's event.

Ian Hendon has organised it for the last three years but has said that at the age of 58, he needs to pass the baton on. Ian said, "It won't be fair on anybody for me to kick it off in January if I couldn't carry it through." Duties would include applying to Portsmouth City Council and liaising with the police as well as updating the social media pages and talking to the media.

Ian added, "The bank holiday weekend is the ideal time to have it. It's going to be identical to last year but  this time we won't have a very long stop at Clarence Pier because nobody has any money in their pockets to buy ice-creams as we're all stark naked."

If you're interested in helping to organise 2015's event, contact Ian on ian@henden.re.

If you're interested in taking part in this year's event, more information can be found on the website at www.portsmouthwnbr.org or on the Facebook page.
