Every year, we happen to catch the Philly Naked Bike Ride as it passes through our neighborhood and we've even caught a few photos in the past. The Bare-As-You-Dare biking event hits the streets this Sunday, August 25, promoting positive body image and cycling enthusiasm.
The event welcomes riders of all types, so if you want to join the brave souls on wheels, sign up for a meeting place and time here. Happy streaking!
The annual Philly Naked Bike Ride is one of the city's greatest what-on-earth moments. We've experienced it here and here, and it's always an..uh..interesting night. The ride is tomorrow, August 25th.
Stephanie and I had front row seats at N 3rd Restaurant yesterday evening as the Naked Bike Riders streamed down N 3rd St. Most of the restaurant crowd combined with the Brown St block party cheered the brave Riders on with hoots and hollers as they biked on by with their nakedness and freedom.
What is the Philly Naked Bike Ride?
From their site: "PNBR: is about riding together to promote fuel conscious consumption, positive body image and cycling advocacy. Ride with us and bring your own message too!"
Here are some photos we captured:
Seen with my naked eye, and captured on our cell phone, the naked bicycle riders were out in full glory the other night during Philly's Naked Bike Ride. I got a quick glimpse of them on Poplar Street at N 2nd Street.
All shapes and sizes (of bikes that is) and as happy as naked riders can be. Hundreds of bicyclers were riding bare back, bare butts and caught naked in Northern Liberties!
Only in Philadelphia, folks.
