Manchester naked bike ride: Hundreds expected to streak through city's streets for annual cycle
Hundreds of naked cyclists are set to streak through Manchester city centre.
Onlookers will be able to catch an eye-full of the crowd of bare bikers as they ride through the city’s streets at 7pm tonight (Friday).
Setting off from All Saints Park on Oxford Road, the group of male and female cyclists will whizz past Albert Square and on to Deansgate before heading past Deansgate Locks to the finishing line back at the park.
The bizarre annual cycle, now in its tenth year, is being organised by the team behind the North West’s Velo Fest, which is currently hosting events around the city.
Organisers expect 200 participants for this year’s event – double last year’s turnout.
They are working closely with police as they prepare to bare all for the city cruise – which will be mirrored around the world as part of World Naked Bike Ride Day.
Also on the festival’s roster this week is a treasure hunt atop bikes starting on Grosvenor Street this Sunday afternoon.
