Philly Naked Bike Ride


What Your Not Going To See at this Year’s Naked Bike Ride

The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is an international, summer, clothing-optional cycling event that usually takes place in as many as 80 cities across 20 countries including Philadelphia. The Philly Naked Bike Ride 2020 is the latest victim of the pandemic and covid19 virus, and has been cancelled for 2020. Every year the ride takes place at the end of the summer, winding it’s way through Philadelphia on a route released to the riders and the media an hour before the ride kicks off. The mission of the ride is to highlight body positivity and bring awareness towards fuel consumption.

UPDATE FOR 2021: I see a lot of folks coming in for 2021 info, here it is.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia bike riders won’t need their shirts, pants, skirts or even underwear — just a mask.

Organizers of the annual Philly Naked Bike Ride say this year’s event will take place Aug. 28 and will require masks, based on the city’s earlier coronavirus restrictions. HEAD to the Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride SITE for more info.

Several cities across the world did hold their annual bike ride including Spain where riders covered their faces as well as their genitals with masks. (Source)

Photos from the 2016 Philly Naked Bike Ride.  The ride is meant to highlight body positivity and bring awareness towards fuel consumption. It was held Saturday, September 10 throughout downtown Philadelphia starting near the Art Museum, swinging by City Hall, down Chestnut Street passed Independence Hall, up Market Street to JFK into West Philly, down Chestnut Street to 19th, around Rittenhouse Square, down Locust to South Street and several after parties. I photographed them at 4 locations and at each one their was a healthy crowd there to cheer them on. Did I mention they had a police escort, yes they did. People always ask me did anyone get arrested, no.


Ultimately, one of the goals of the Philly Naked Bike Ride is to desexualize nudity and to encourage everyone to embrace nudity as a normal, enjoyable way of life. Following this policy will help further this goal and teach all of us how to be better people in general. naked
