Bristol likes to be known as a “cycling city”. Policy is to add cycle lanes when roads are being redeveloped and put in cycle racks. Steep hills and heavy traffic work against pleasant cycling and the largely Victorian street plan doesn’t leave room to separate cyclists from traffic in many parts.
An intrepid group of cyclists set off on 28 June 2015 to point out the vulnerability of the human body –
riding naked apart from colourful body painting and slogans.
Happily the weather was warm and sunny as you can see in the pictures….
427 cyclists took part this year and it is happening again in 2016, will there be even more riders?
