While thousands of cyclists raced through Putney this weekend a saucier bike ride was taking place just around the corner in Battersea.

Dozens of cyclists, in Battersea Park, rejected Lycra in favour of bikinis and swimming trunks.

Bike boutique, Luv Handles, organised the event, on Saturday, which featured rather a lot of flesh on show.

It is their second annual bikini bike ride.
