The World Naked Bike Ride is back with two dates in Yorkshire.

Naked rides, protests against oil dependency and 'car culture', are being held across the UK in June and July and two Yorkshire events are on the calendar.

World Naked Bike Ride UK will take place in historic York on June 25, then at the seaside in Scarborough on June 26.

The York ride will begin at 5pm, 50m south of the Millenium Bridge on the Fulford side of the river. The route will pass landmarks including the Minster, the city gates and Clifford's Tower.

If you've ever been tempted to try a bike ride in the buff, now is your chance!

But if you're nervous about baring all, you can still take part with your clothes on and support the protest. The World Naked Bike Ride dress code is 'bare as your dare'.

New riders are encouraged to check their bike is roadworthy and has inflated tyres, as well as decorating their bikes with a protest message or decorations.

Riders are advised to bring suncream, something to eat/drink and a friend who can hold onto their clothes until they get back.
