The Philly Naked Bike Ride
Posted on Tue, Sep 08, 2009
Hundreds of carefree cyclists traversed Center City on Sunday for the Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride 2009. Very few people actually started the race naked, but some said they might dare to go bare as the ride progressed. Many wore swimsuits, underwear, some women went topless, and others with carefully applied body paint. Organizers hoped the event spotlighted the vulnerability of cyclists, to make drivers aware of the need to share the road, and to make people feel better about their bodies, whatever their shape or size.
