Hundreds of cyclists stripped off and pedalled through the streets of London today as part of an annual protest against car culture.

Wearing body paint and trainers – and little else – scores of environmentally-aware riders braved the summer downpours to take part in the London leg of the World Naked Bike Ride.

The event, which first took place in 2004, is intended to raise awareness of the danger of cycling and the ‘car centric’ culture in the capital. Three cyclists were killed in London in the last month.
