PHILADELPHIA (AP) – And they’re off – the bicyclists and their clothes.
Thousands of nude cyclists set off on a trek around Philadelphia on Saturday for the annual Philly Naked Bike Ride.
About 3,000 riders in various stages of undress pedaled a 10-mile (16-kilometer) course taking in sights including Independence Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where Sylvester Stallone sprinted up the steps while training as Rocky.
Participants in the ride can go as bare as they dare. Some were in their birthday suits while others sported underwear or body paint and glitter.
Olivia Neely, who was topless, was riding for the first time, inspired by the recent end of a romantic relationship.
