Okay so let’s just say, hypothetically, that stripping down to your birthday suit and riding a bike through Center City isn’t exactly your cup of tea. But let’s say, for the sake of argument, that hanging out and partying with a bunch of local cyclists is totally your thing, so long as it’s a clothed gathering. Keep reading—I’ve got something that might be right up your alley.


The organizers of the annual clothing-optional Philly Naked Bike Ride just released details of a fully clothed bike ride/party they're having on October 26th. It's sort of the G-rated version of the Naked Bike Ride back in August. The ride will start at Sister Cities Park at 18th Street and the Ben Franklin Parkway, right next to Logan Circle. Cyclists will gather at 7 p.m., and then, in a very Pied Piper-like fashion, they'll set off on a bike ride, following a leader who's got a big ol' sound system hooked up to a bike trailer (translation: you'll have a pretty fun soundtrack to sing along to while you ride). The group will stop at various points throughout the city (route TBA) for impromptu dance parties before ending at a bar for, well, more partying.

Note: This is a Halloween-themed ride, so if you wear a costume, you just might get a prize. RSVP over on Facebook.
