Bournemouth nude cyclist charged with ‘disorderly behaviour’

Richard Collins, 53, known as ‘The Cambridge Nude Cyclist’, took advantage of the warm weather on Wednesday, riding au naturel from a friend’s house in Moordown to Bournemouth Pier, and along the prom to Sandbanks – where he dressed to wait for the ferry. It was there that the police caught up with him.

He was charged under Section Five of the Public Order act 1986 for “disorderly behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person
likely to be caused harassment alarm or distress thereby.”
