This annual ride, which just wrapped up its seventh year, isn’t so much an excuse to get naked and pedal through the city of brotherly love as it is an art show of body paint. Artists gather to cover riders in everything from tiger faces to superheroes. Riders take an ever-changing route, and this year even crashed the wedding pictures of one (un?) lucky couple.
San Francisco, CA
The annual Bay to Breakers run in San Francisco, a 7.46-mile jaunt from the Embarcadero to the Great Highway, is perhaps the most famous “naked” race in the nation, despite the fact that the race itself isn’t naked, per se (most participants dress in funny costumes). There is one subset of runners, however, who do the run au naturel and refer to themselves as the “Bare to Breakers.” If you’ve got, like, eight hours to kill and want to find out how to do it, you can read their tutorial here.
