I love a good ALT event, and this one certainly fit the bill. The event is a well guarded secret until a day before the ride when the official route is announced. Shooting such an event was a first for me. The organizer was very helpful and recommended I get to the Assembly early, camera packed away, to meet riders and get permissions for photos.
Hundreds Bare It All For Annual Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride – CBS Philly
This was my 3rd year of participation in this years annual Philadelphia Naked Bike Ride. The organizers learned from their mistakes from previous years and made some smart changes to this years ride. This year, the ride started on West River Drive, which is closed to automobile traffic until 5pm. This allowed our group to assemble and hang without throngs of looky-loos getting their proverbial rocks off. The ride started a bit before 5pm, and the never-ending line of naked cyclists rode through Philly with wild abandon! The map of the ride route was delivered early this year as well, giving everyone a better idea of the directions. As with all Naked Bike rides, the throngs of cell-phone clutching crowds with open mouths were a common sight along the entire route.
