Naked Philadelphia bikers need only to bring their masks.
Participants in the annual Philly Naked Bike Ride can ditch their clothes to ride as long as they follow the Aug. 28 event’s mask guidance, which was put in place before the city lifted this week most of its coronavirus restrictions.
Organizers said they haven’t met since the city updated its guidance so for now, they’re “going to stick with our initial mask guidance.”
The 10-mile ride, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic, has been promoted this year as the “mask edition.”
Thousands of cyclists typically gather in a park to strip down and paint each other’s bodies before jumping on their bikes.
The course takes them by sights including Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which was featured in the “Rocky” movies.
