Philly Naked Bike Ride

When asked if the city believes there are any health issues connected with sitting on a bicycle after it has been used by a naked individual, Ritz said the Health Department recommends using a barrier between the rider and seat.

“For example, underwear, a towel, pants, etc., are all good options,” he wrote. “For riders concerned about using bicycles any time following events such as the Naked Bike Ride, clothing is always recommended and would be a sufficient barrier.”
