philly's got balls...

lots of them! yesterday, mike and i went to philadelphia to see the galileo exhibit at the franklin institute, and when we stepped out of the museum, what did we see? balls! lots and lots of balls! and boobies and wieners and girls' hoo-hoos! not everyone was naked or even half-naked...some people were painted, some were in undies, many were wearing backpacks and helmets, and some were covered in human fur. unfortunately, they were riding by so fast, i couldn't get the best pictures with my cheap camera.
we decided to jump in the car and follow them for more pictures, because we're...ummm...creepy? no, but...well, wouldn't you?
we also witnessed a mild hit-and-run during the event, as a car tried to force its way through the crowd of bikes.

we don't think anyone was hurt, but it was amusing to watch a naked guy talk to the police in all seriousness...
since i couldn't take the best pictures, i attempted to record these nudists. that didn't come out so well either, but you'll get the idea...

if you're wondering, as i was, why people were doing this, here are the list of reasons i found:
  • We ride to PROMOTE CYCLING ADVOCACY.
  • We ride to RAISE AWARENESS about FUEL CONSUMPTION and the environmental impact of car culture.
  • We ride to PROMOTE POSITIVE BODY IMAGE.
  • We ride to PROMOTE ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY as a way of life and a corporate responsibility.
