A man who got naked for the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR), at the weekend, had to be removed after he got a little bit excited.

The cyclist, who was not identified, was taking part in the event in Canterbury, Kent, but was removed by police before the start, after he became “aroused”.


According to witnesses, the view was “horrible”, and one person told Cambridge News: “I heard gasps and I turned around – it was a horrible sight.

“It’s fair to say he was overexcited and got aroused.


“It looked like he was enjoying the event a bit too much.”

The cyclist was spoken to by police after being removed from the event.


Organisers had previously told participants: “The police have confirmed they WILL act on ANY inappropriate behaviour and we, the organisers will support that.

“If you are coming just to be a pain in the neck and to be the one to end this WNBR we’d rather you stayed at home.”


Ride organiser Barry Freeman also commented, saying: “We do not accept this behaviour.”

The WNBR is an event organised in order to draw attention to dangers faced by cyclists from other road users.
