Hundreds, maybe thousands, of naked people will be cycling through Philly sans clothing this afternoon (Saturday, August 24th) starting at 5. That's right, the official directive is 'bare as you dare', and as a past observer of this annual ride (now in 8th year), there are A LOT of completely nude cyclists...not a joke. (I briefly contemplated joining the ride, but need to do a few more sit-ups...maybe next year :) )
As for today's ride, the official route has been announced with a 5 pm start at FDR Park and ride up Broad...Passyunk...Ninth..Market...Spring Garden...ending in Eakins Oval.
The official ride starts at 5, while pre-game festivities (including body painting) start at 2:30p.
Check out the map below and if you're riding, I applaud you and have a great time. (I live near Spring Garden, so I'll try to make it out to snap you picture!).
