Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride 2016 Fashion, Fun & OMG’s
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.
I purposely didn’t publish and very overtly naked folks. You might ask how did I determine that…
OK well I did publish this one, he seemed to understand I had a camera or was he saying “Get the hell out of here?”
Oh she was definitely saying Get The Hell Out of Here.
This is impressive
Oh I love these swag bags and could only be pre-ordered. They’re so cute.
Yes Indego – Philly’s Bike Share were rented for the #PNBR16, some people were completely naked on the bikes too
