Thousands of youngsters rode through central London yesterday on BMXs and mountain bikes to protest against the capital's knife crime epidemic.

Today, social media users have reacted to the protest with praise.

The demonstration called #BikesUpKnivesDown was led by the #BikeStormz movement and aimed to bring attention to the rise of gang violence and increasing murder rate in the UK.

The ride started at London Bridge and went to Oxford Street and involved around 4,000 cyclists.

It was organised by teenagers known as 'Jake100' and 'MAC', who hope to bring communities together through cycling.

'This is the biggest ride out for the youth against knife crime. We want people to put the guns down, put the knives down and for everyone to love their life, live their life and be peaceful and respectful. Never leave your house with a bad intention' MAC told the Independent.
