Bodypaint.Me and Get Hype Productions present…

Philly Naked Bike Ride Fundraiser

Join us as we help raise funds for the seventh annual Philly Naked Bike Ride. This unique fundraiser will feature limited edition high-quality prints of the PNBR logo painted on eight nude models forming a human sculpture that was painted by Matt Deifer and photographed by Charles Cerrone in their studio. Organizers from PNBR will be available to answer any questions. A silent auction of photos and other artwork focused on the PNBR will be held. Photos and video of past PNBR events will be displayed throughout the night and live bodypainting will occur. Refreshments will be served. Other than raising event awareness and the body positivity movement embodied by the Philly Naked Bike Ride, the fundraiser’s goal is raising money for the bodypaint at this year’s pre-ride activities. For the past couple years, Bodypaint.Me has provided donation-based bodypainting for all cyclists to make the ride as colorful and vibrant as possible! This year, we want to make the bodypainting even better with more paint, more bodypainters, and higher quality professional body paint, powder and glitter, and to make it free for as many riders as possible! Please help us reach our goal! Together we can make this year’s ride the best one ever! Here’s the final image that was painted by Matt Deifer and photographed by Charles Shan Cerrone. You can purchase a limited edition fine art print of this human sculpture at our upcoming PNBR Fundraiser. Scroll down below for all the details!

About the Philly Naked Bike Ride

PNBR is on August 29th this year and we’re riding together to promote fuel conscious consumption, positive body image, and cycling advocacy. Ride with us and bring your own message, too! The Philly Naked Bike Ride is just one of many that are part of the World Naked Bike Ride movement. Check it out! http://www.worldnakedbikeride.org

Get to know us!








RSVP and invite your friends on our FB event page! https://www.facebook.com/events/139992789668261/




Have you made your plans? Invited friends and family? Is the bike ready? It’s only 2 months to the ride. Are you excited? We invite you to join the dedicated group of volunteers that make this ride successful every year. We have numerous roles and positions to fill, especially the Street Team. Contact us at info@phillynakedbikeride.org if you’re interested. Or meet us at several events through the summer as we distribute these postcards!


If you cannot help us by volunteering/organizing, one way to help us out is to donate some cash at http://www.gofundme.com/Naked-Bike-Ride. We need the help to print out posters and postcards to advertise the ride, and for supplies at the pre-ride event and during the ride. It is with your generosity that the ride continues successfully every year. Please help this year’s ride be an epic event.


Riders, we are asking for help to design this year’s poster and postcard to be used to publicize the ride all over the Philly area and the internet. We are looking for designs that will grab attention and hopefully urge new people to join the fun.  If you have any artistic ability, or are just inspired by the ride, please submit your designs and any questions to val@phillynakedbikeride.org and cc: phillynakedbikeride@gmail.com. The designs then will be posted on the FB community page (and maybe on this website) for people to vote on. The poster and postcard designs need not be the same, but we do request several elements to be included in the designs.

  • Philly Naked Bike Ride 2015
  • 29 August 2015
  • phillynakedbikeride.org
  • PNBR bell logo

Please send the design as a gif, but the final format would need to be tif with a bleed for printing.  The poster size is 13 x 19, and the postcard is 4x 6.  Please send by Friday, 22 May. We will then have about a week of voting, then the organizational team will decide which design(s) will be used. We might use 2 or 3 designs for this year. Below is the PNBR bell logo and one early draft design.

2015 Ride – Seventh Year

Winter still has a little hold on the area, but Spring is just around the corner. It’s now time to start planning for the seventh edition of the PNBR. It will take a close, dedicated, fun loving team to achieve another successful ride. If you are interested in helping, check out the Volunteer page and email info@phillynakedbikeride.org to let us know how you would like to help. Planning meetings will start next month, April.

Set aside the weekend of August 29-30 for the PNBR 2015!!! Exact date will be announced at the end of April.

Where can you see and post pictures and videos from the ride, now that we’ve been censored by Facebook?

Just because Facebook is too uptight to deal with how amazing we are (see next post below) doesn’t mean this year’s Naked Bike Ride is invisible. You can view and post pictures and videos to our 2014 Flickr pool here:


You do have to join (or sign into) Flickr and then join the group to view and post.

And – if you want to take a trip down Naked Memory Lane on Flickr – you can use the “Search Groups” link in the Groups drop-down menu at the top of any page to find our photo pools from previous years.

And of course there’s Youtube – you can find a ton of videos here:


If you want to let your friends on Facebook know where to find pics and videos please share these links on there – and let people know how pathetic Facebook is for censoring one of the most beautiful – and absolutely non-obscene – events around.
