PNBR #10! Philly Bodypainting Day! After Party!

This is a long post, but that’s because we have lots to share!

If you’ve been following our social media, you might have already heard about these… If not, we have some info to share with you, so we’re glad you’re here! PNBR organizers are working hard to bring you an amazing 10th ride!

To start off, our pre-ride is going to be expanded this year to accommodate our partnership with Human Arts Connection and for the very first Philly Bodypainting day. The day will start early this year at 12pm. The application link is open for artists and models who want to participate in this colorful event which will kick off the festivities.

So you’re probably wondering what Philly Bodypainting Day is, right? Andy Golub of Human Arts Connection (the artist and group behind NYC Bodypaint Day) and our very own Matt Deifer of will be co-presenting this event. The painting will start at 12 pm, and end at 4 pm. 50+ fully nude models will be painted head to toe in the theme of Movement. They will then ride with PNBR as we meander through Philly for our 10th ride! Models of all colors, shapes, and sizes will be randomly paired with a bodypaint artist at check in. We will do our best to accommodate everyone, so please register early as applications will not be taken on site.

Check out the Facebook event for Philly Bodypaint Day for more details, and the application if you’re interested in participating.

If you’re not participating in Philly Bodypainting Day, we’ve still got you covered in lots of paint at the DIY Paint section which will be expanded this year! The most memorable PNBR memories come from seeing your feisty, funny, and charming DIY body art so bring your body, your friends, and get creative! DIY Bodypainting will start at 2:30 PM. We recognize that many bodypainters, professional and amateur, will want to take part in the Philly Bodypainting Day, but we will do our best to have artists at the ready to help you at the DIY table. If you’ve got artistic flare but aren’t doing the big event, please reach out if you want to help out the mass of riders get ready at the DIY Paint section. Send us an email: “DIY Bodypainter” in the subject line please!

The ride is coming along well! We’re going to shoot for 10 miles in honor of our 10th year, so go get your bike checked and get those gams bike ready! We’ll be back to let you know about Philly bike shops who are offering free check ups!

Ok, so the AFTERPARTY!!! We will be hosting an Official After Party this year! Warehouse On Watts is the venue, and tickets are on sale now! Pre-Sale tickets are $12. Food trucks and a cash bar will be available. Indoor and outdoor bike parking will be available at no charge. Feel free to enjoy the NAKED DANCE PARTY because this will be a clothing optional event. You do have to get dressed to go home though :/ HA!

Please get your tickets early because that will ensure we can hold the event.

That’s all for now! It’s going to be a great PNBR and we hope to see you there!!
