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.
