The Philly Naked Bike Ride promotes the safety concerns of bicyclists and pedestrians as well as body positivity, and recognizes the human dependence on oil.
It can come as a bit of a shock for those caught unaware that the Philly Naked Bike Ride was touring the city Saturday evening.
“I’m not sure whether to look or to cover my eyes,” said a man standing along the street at Rittenhouse Square, with a laugh.
“Wait! They’re coming here now?” asked a woman excitedly shortly before a lone male bicyclist — wearing only socks, sneakers, and a backpack — stopped traffic in an attempt to reroute the vehicles away from the planned route.
