Thousands of bike riders are shedding their clothes in the hopes that they can get us all to stop and think about the negative effects that cars (and the pollution they create) have on people and the planet.

Remember: those who like to go naked are those who should least be seen in such a state.

And some of these people need to ride their bikes a bit more often.

If MoDo is involved, I’m not going to even look.

I’ll wait until the idiot female lefty libs come up with another “girls say yes to guys who say no” campaign. [That was Joan Baez’ mantra to young men who refused to fight in Vietnam.] Would you lie (”I bought 5,000 carbon credits and recycle”) in order to bed a cute liberal chick?

Naked? Does that mean that they won't wear those dorky-looking helmets? Seems to me they need to worry more about getting the dangly bits caught in the machinery than head injuries. ;^)

I've never seen a naked bike rider, but if I ever do I'm sure it will make me think negative thoughts about cars.

You can still get a sunburn with snow on the ground.

Thankfully there are no pictures.

The manufacture of bikes causes pollution.

Yeah, all of those negative effects, like world wide transport of food, technology, and material.

Or school buses or ambulances, or getting to work, or to an airport, or being able to set up and run a business with qualified workers, that live more than a couple of miles away.

Or a million other examples of modern success that have allowed humanity to ascend to greatness.

Nah, can;t have any of that

I like getting naked as much as the next person, but lefties try to equate doffing your shorts with some twisted King Learish fetish about exposing their souls (or the blank spot where their soul would be, if they believed in God, that is...).

Why yes, if I see someone riding naked past my house the first thing I'll think of is how I'm damaging the planet. In fact I'll probably turn green right then and there. I may find it necessary to remove all that non-organic food from from my stomach so keep your distance.

Sign up some elected politicians to ride with their belated constituents....that will get our conservative eyeballs 'informed' on their cause celeb.....

I'm not sure how seeing a neked person on a bike will help me with connecting that a car is evil. Would it be because one can't see a neked person in a car and that's why a car is not healthy?
Why not just ride a bike? why be nude? This is so stupid and insane. They should all ride a donkey.

All I can figure is that a ton of people will have head colds and interesting sunburns. The medical profession will prosper.

Yeah, that'll do it. I see the connection.

It's certainly a powerful way to make a point, but what does it feel like to ride nude?

Yeah, nothing says "powerful" like making an idiot of youself.

Someone should concentrate poison ivy sap and spray these freaks with it, liberally.
