HUNDREDS of cyclists will be daring to bare all as they descend on Brighton for the annual Naked Bike Ride.

The cheeky event is a celebration of the bike and the body and a protest ride against car culture and the vulnerability of cyclists on the road.

This year's ride, the eleventh, will start off from The Level at midday.

Up to 1,000 riders have taken part in previous peak years and many more are expected to take to two wheels later today.

The ride forms part of national Bike Week, which runs until June 19.
