Prepare for the Ride

What to Prepare for the Ride

It’s less than a week to the ride!!! Are you getting excited to ride naked (or barely naked)? There are some things that you should do to prepare for the ride.

Riders: The ride is free and there is NO Registration. Just show up and have fun! The pre-ride activities will be from 2:30-4:30pm, and the ride will start at 5pm and should last about 2-1/2 hours.  Stay tuned to this site, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the starting location, route, and other information. The details will be posted 24 hours prior to the start of the ride. In addition, see below for other things to consider:

  • Make sure your bike works.
  • If you need to rent a bike, PNBR is not associated with any local bike rental companies. PNBR does suggest renting a bike for the day versus using Indego, as renting will be less expensive. Please bring your own towel if you’re renting!!  While this is NOT an endorsement, Wheel Fun Rentals will be close to the route of the Ride.
      • You might want to plan for these things:
        • Clothes for after the ride
        • A way to carry your clothes with you or on your bike
          • A way to keep those clothes dry if it rains (We still Ride)
        • Shoes
        • Helmet (highly recommended)
        • Cash for water, pre-ride and post-ride activities, and to donate to PNBR.
          • For a donation of $1, we can give you a gift of a 1/2 liter bottle of ice cold water
          • For a donation of $20, we can give you a gift of an official PNBR canvas backpack!
        • Phone
        • Water
        • Patch kit
          • Better, an extra tube, tools, and pump
        • Bandaids
        • Sunblock
        • Bug spray
        • Decorations for your body and your bike
      • Remember to keep your clothing with you, in case you have to leave the Ride.

[Volunteers: There is still time to sign up to volunteer. Contact us at phillynakedbikeride@gmail.com and include Volunteer in the Subject line.]  It’s too close to the Ride to have time to get you oriented, but please say “Hello” at the Donations & Water table.

Everybody: Read the Code of Conduct.
