The Philly Naked Bike Ride was created to celebrate both biking and body positivity. It celebrates all bodies and all forms of free expression. The Philly ride has been around for 11 years, and boasts somewhere between 2, to 3, riders each year. Organizers also encourage riders to get creative with costumes, paints, hats, and anything under the sun. Not only are riders celebrating their bodies, but they are also promoting conscious fuel consumption.
