City Skid Marks Against Climate Change

Someone stapled flyers to all the bikes locked up around our offices—I’m assuming this is happening all over town—inviting one and all to participate in the 2008 Cyclos Nudistas, a.k.a. the World Naked Bike Ride. Somehow riding nude, or as “bare as you dare,” around Gas Works Park on July 12 and/or Denny Blaine Park on August 17 will “SAVE the CLIMATE!” Nude cycling will allow us to “protest oil dependency and celebrate the power and individuality of our bodies,” according to the flyer, and by experiencing “the liberation and simplicity of human-powered transport” we will somehow or other save the planet.
I’m not buying it.
