- PNBR 2010 Number 2 had awesome weather, and had over two thousand participants. There were a few accidents, but luckly only mild ones to report. It was about an 4 mile ride that lasted for about two hours.
- PNBR 2009 Philadelphia's first ride was on Sunday 6 September 2009. The innaugural ride assembled along the Schuylkill river trail. Riders and onlookers were separated at the Locust Street entrance to the trail. Riders assembled on the lower trail between Walnut and Chestnut streets; onlookers were encouraged to watch the meet-up and cheer from the elevated ramps and walkways between the two bridges. A small changing/body painting area was set up beneath the ramps between Walnut and Chestnut for riders wanting some privacy to get ready. The non-riders at the meeting place were excited and supportive. With over 1,000 people at the site there were only two reports of crude or aggressive behavior by non-riders before departure.
Preparations were completed within an hour and a half. There was communication with police at the meeting site and an escort was provided. The PNBR drummers marched down the trail to start the ride. The Philadelphia Police were outstanding: respectful and supportive; stopping traffic at major intersections, and staying throughout the route. An errant rider led a group of approximately 40 on a fast paced, and at times difficult, alternate route. They made it to the afterparty unscathed.
The route ended at 5th and Fairmount, getting off the street and into the afterparty was time consuming, but police continued to help direct traffic and riders until the intersection was cleared.
