Bicyclists bare all and pedal down Bourbon Street. #rsrh

According to the event’s website, riders “face automobile traffic with our naked bodies as the best way of defending our dignity and exposing the unique dangers faced by cyclists and pedestrians.” In a less eloquent way, the event’s planners also link nudity and a dependence on oil and other non-renewable energy.

Any adult can participate as long as they do it in a “human-powered” way: skates, skateboard, non-motorized scooter or bike.

[Hmmmm. About the tires on those bikes and the urethane wheels on the skates/skateboards … Any idea where those come from?]
