...bike riders are exposing the impact of climate change by exposing a whole lot more, taking part in a world naked bike ride.
Joining me now one of the organizers of the naked bike ride in Chicago, Elizabeth Tieri.
All right, so Elizabeth, what does it feel like to ride naked through the streets of Chicago?
ELIZABETH TIERI, ORGANIZER, CHICAGO NAKED BIKE RIDE:
Its really empowering.
Why is it empowering?
Because you get to be with this enormous mass of cyclists who are like minded and shout your message to the city and to the world.
And youre completely naked on the bike seat.
Theres nothing else there.
I wrote in my underpants.
People wear what they choose, and we say bare as you dare, whatever makes you feel comfortable.
Some people are fully clothed, but we encouraged people to be as naked as they feel comfortable riding.
And what is your message when youre riding around naked in Chicago?
The purpose of being naked is to express how vulnerable we are as cyclists on the road.
We want cars and pedestrians and people to recognize that were exposing ourselves to anything that happens on the road. ...
And theres a climate change message wrapped up in all this.
Am I wrong about that?
Not at all.
Theres definitely a climate change message.
We like to celebrate freedom from oil.
We ride our bikes so that were not car dependent. ...
So they are showing that the cold air caused shrinkage?
Now should Jones be caught
The department would completely disavow
Any knowledge of him
Out on a limb...
No different than a bunch of queers in an exhibitionist “pride” parade.
“I was in the climate! I was in the climate!”
Just another opportunity for a bunch of fags to show off their pee pees. Perverts are perverted.
When did going nude en masse ever change anyones mind about anything?
The World Naked Bike Ride is returning to Cork this June and organisers are looking for participants.
The bike ride takes place in Cork City on Saturday, June 8 and will see riders travel the city by bike - in the nip.
The dress code motto is bare as you dare" and full or partial nudity is encouraged, but not mandatory.
Bodypainting is also optional.
The event is an annual, worldwide bike ride that highlights the vulnerability of cyclists everywhere and decries societys dependence on pollution-based transport. ..."
The event began in Spain in 2001 after a run of tragic cyclist deaths in road accidents.
It now takes place in over 100 cities across the world each year and expanded to look at broader issues of pollution, resource wars and global warming.
If youre interested in taking part, you can register your interest by popping an email to email@example.com.
The actress aka
“Bunny Boiler” had it down pat some 40 years ago:
“I Will Not Be Ignored!”
The latest outbreak of Look-@-Me-ism is now on display.
Isn’t that just precious...
We like to celebrate freedom from oil. We ride our bikes so that were not car dependent. ...
The efficiency of the human body at converting fuel (aka, food) to motive energy, is 18% to 25% for a well conditioned athlete. That food was grown by tractors powered by fossil fuels. The food was processed with fossil fuels. The food was transported to distribution centers by fossil fuels. The food was kept refrigerated in transit by fossil fuels. The food was delivered to supermarkets by trucks powered by fossil fuels. The perishable food was kept cold in the supermarket in refrigerators running on fossil fuels. The lights, inventory control system, and cash registers all are powered by fossil fuels.
So, if you account for all the fossil fuels to get that food into your mouth and the crappy efficiency of your body at turning that food into energy, you are a HUGE ENERGY SINK that could be avoided by NOT cycling and driving to the store. The notion that you are saving energy by riding a bike is absolutely preposterous. There's a reason that we aren't all sitting on statonary bicycles and generating power.
But nobody ever accused leftists of being rocket scientists.
Empowering? Okay, you can stop right there. Anytime that word is used there’s no need to read or go any further. It’s all bullsheet. Unless you need a little laugh.
How do these idiots get away with public exhibitionism, indecent exposure, manufacturing consent among minor children, etc?
Every time, the more lib they are, the more they think stripping down will make their cause more important.
Snort. all that does is make them look more stupid.
How much oil and power was used to make those bikes? If they were truly concerned, they’d walk everywhere in their bare feet but they don’t because this is just for LOOK AT MEEEEEE!!!
Cities now rent bikes for public use. I’ll pass.
Empowering? Okay, you can stop right there. Anytime that word is used theres no need to read or go any further. Its all bullsheet.
I'm pretty sure she meant "arousing".
At least a few should have been arrested for that — in a professional manner of course.
