Philly Naked Bike Ride!

Stephanie and I had front row seats at N 3rd Restaurant yesterday evening as the Naked Bike Riders streamed down N 3rd St.  Most of the restaurant crowd combined with the Brown St block party cheered the brave Riders on with hoots and hollers as they biked on by with their nakedness and freedom.  

What is the Philly Naked Bike Ride?

From their site:  "PNBR: is about riding together to promote fuel conscious consumption, positive body image and cycling advocacy.  Ride with us and bring your own message too!"

Here are some photos we captured:

From the pictures here perhaps there should have been some restrictions on attire!

This would be one of those events that I'd prefer watching to participating in.

Some of them missed the part about positive body images. But hey, at least they're working toward it.

Awesome.  

Back in 1978 I saw Queen play in Munich.  That was the Bicycles Tour and they had the naked bicycle race on stage, a little something that was cut from the American shows.  

I am a cyclist and I would love to do something like that, but I assure you, that seat and an unprotected butt, not a happy time!

Thanks!

Wow, I think there would be too much bouncing and jiggling for me but good for them!  I'm sure it was a stitch to watch!

It has already become a bit of a tradition in just a few short years.  It is a cool message and I love the freedom of expression mixed in with it.  Perhaps not for everybody, but it is well organized and a lot of fun for the riders and the spectactors.

Christopher: I think you already have to have great self esteem to participate. As in past years, I see that not every rider goes completely nude. Also, the comment about riding naked on a bike seat is well taken. Even as well padded as I am, don't think that would be very comfortable.

Hi Christopher & Stephanie - We had the Tour de Fat this weekend - totally the other direction, with everyone dressed up in weird costumes. I'd guess it was more bizarre than the naked one - people really go all out for that exact effect - but less chafing.

What a hoot!  With some, it was hard to tell if they were cheating with a bit of clothing, or was it tats?  Sounds like fun!

From PNBR website:

Q:  Do I have to ride naked ?

A:  NO.  PNBR is a BARE AS YOU DARE event.

You thought your title would pull us in.  NAKED.  Well it worked.  I ride a bike, but naked riding doesn't sound comfortable to me.  I don't like anything dangling off the bike, it's dangerous.

Christopher and Stephanie, thanks for sharing. Wow, I've never heard of this. I prefer nakedness and freedom in my own house, but promoting fuel concious consumption, positive body image, and cycle advocacy sounds good to me. :)

Well....there must be something in the air ...or water..... Asheville just had a big "protest" sponsored by GoTopless.org designed to give women equal opportunities to go topless without restrictions in Asheville.

The problem with the "protest" is women are not banned from going topless here anyway.

Whatever turns you on....go for it.

How does this help us be better Realtors???????
