The annual bike ride is expected to draw over 3,000 cyclists from all over the country.
By: Philly Naked Bike Ride
The Philly Naked Bike Ride is an "as bare as you dare" event as we protest our over dependence on fossil fuels, advocate for the vulnerability and safety of cyclists, promote cycling as a viable and desirable way to get around Philadelphia, and promote positive body image and acceptance. This years' ride is projected to be approximately 10 miles, with the starting location to be announced 24 hours prior to the event on our web site, www.phillynakedbikeride.org, social media and through additional press releases.
There is no registration, or fee for this event. Participants are asked to follow Philly Naked Bike Ride on social media for all available updates leading up to the event. Cyclists are encouraged to attend the pre-ride festivities before the ride to get bodypainted by Bodypaint.Me artists, for free, to celebrate the ride's message. There's also a DIY bodypaint area where riders can paint themselves. The ride will be followed by an after party hosted by mosaic muralist, Isaiah Zagar, creator of Philadelphia's Magic Gardens.
The ride is open to all bike riders eighteen and over, and to minors with an accompanying parent or guardian. Riders of all skill levels are welcome to ride, as are people using other human powered conveyances. Philly Naked Bike Ride has become one of the largest rides in the world with more than 3,000 riders expected along with the many thousands of spectators who always line the event route to cheer on the riders.
Affiliated with the World Naked Bike Ride, the Philadelphia event was started as a way to protest our over reliance on cars and fossil fuels, and to promote cycling advocacy. The Philly Naked Bike Ride is a free, grassroots event organized by a group of local volunteers.
