My home town...
Yes, I live in a college town.
This weekend in brisk, 40 degree, rainy weather, locals gathered for a *Naked Bike Ride*.
This guy is sporting the official slogan LESS GAS MORE ASS
City ordinances allow PUBLIC nudity if it is for a political statement or cause.... and their cause was "For energy independence ~ every day".
It was about 50 people riding their bikes in various states of undress.
Interestingly- they actually got a parade permit- so they not only were a sanctioned event, they had official police escorts!
This was the caption written for the above photo:
The Police Department was there to block traffic for us. They also helped keep the group together. PS—There's nothing like running a red light with no pants and a police escort.
Here is some video footage of the "demonstration"- I am not saying which one is my kid!!!

They also did a "Tweed Ride" where everyone dresses in kind of more British countryside attire..... why these lovely Blokes brought cups and saucers in their wicker basket for a spot of tea. Brilliant!
