Naked Bike Ride Announces Philly Events 7/22, 8/25

Here is a special message from the folks at the Philly Naked Bike Ride about upcoming events including an event tomorrow (Sunday) and the Naked Bike Ride itself which is scheduled for August 25:

Hi there everyone!

We at the Philly Naked Bike Ride are incredibly impressed by how many of you are so committed to biking this summer, despite the outrageous heat! You are all an inspiration and we are so proud to live in the same city as you!

We are also getting super revved up for PNBR 2012 - only a little more than a month until August 25! We can’t wait to let loose, have fun and enjoy the biggest group ride on the East Coast.

Are you excited, too? Come join us this Sunday (July 22)  for......

The first ever PNBR Bike Wash and Rider Warmer!
(otherwise known as the PNBRBWRW)

The fun will happen this Sunday, 12pm-4pm at Cosmic Cafe - the boathouse closest to the Art Museum - on the Schuylkill River Bike Trail. Come over and we’ll make your baby shine for a donation of $4-$8.
We’ll also be hanging out, eating snacks, and getting psyched about the ride in general.

If you come to the Bike Wash you also get first dibs on official
PNBR Bike Lights
Custom printed with the PNBR logo they’re a steal compared to regular lights at only $5 each. Look for Caroline, our Medical Team leader extraordinaire who will have a pretty sign and maybe even a table set up.

Let us know you’ll be there:
