    LPSG'ers...this is a call for those of us blessed with large penises to participate in the world naked bike ride. You'd think it would be uncomfortable, but it wasn't when I rode last year in san francisco.

    The World Naked Bike Ride is on....

    http://www.worldnakedbikeride.org/

    It's time to put a stop to the indecent exposure of people and the planet to cars and the pollution they
    create.

    According to the United Nations, close to a million species of plants and animals could disappear from the face of the earth in the next 50 years as a result of greenhouse gasses being released primarily from motor vehicles.

    On June 11th 2005 over 54 cities across the world will experience the naked joy of the world's largest naked protest against oil dependency and car culture in the history of humanity. Many cities will also ride again on the weekend closest to Valentine's Day 2006.

    You are invited to not only ride with us but also to help organize a WNBR event in the city of your choosing. More information. Visit our upcoming events page for a list of participating cities.

    World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is being organized and supported by many different groups. The groups are only connected by their determination to all be naked on their bikes June 11th, riding in celebration, jubilation to deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world to the masses. Yes, we have many great reasons to be celebrating June 11th with all the glory of naked two wheel sanity. It's time to join hundreds of naked compatriots in a free, non-sexual, fun bike ride!

    All are welcome! From the shy to the bold. Cyclists, rollerbladers, rollerskaters, skate boarders. All
    ages, sizes, and colors welcome. Bring your family and your co-workers!

    What to wear? Do not fear! The World Naked Bike Ride dress code is "Bare As You Dare"... How bare is that ? How dare is that ?...Its all up to you, you decide what you are comfortable with. NO ONE IS EXCLUDED OR DISCRIMINATED AGAINST based on levels of clothing, bodypaint, or anything else, for that matter! PLEASE be creative and colorful in expressing yourself! Bodypainting, bike decorating, and other creative expression is strongly encouraged!

    Unless we change direction, we are likely to end up where we are heading.

    The World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) group was created by Daniel and Conrad to help coordinate a large international naked bike ride between many different activist groups across the World. The World's first international naked bike ride in 2004 was a collaboration between the WNBR group which rode on June 12th and Manifestación Ciclonudista in Spain which rode on June 19th.

    Prior to the June 2004 World Naked bike ride, there were two independent organizations organizing very similar events with virtually identical messages of protesting oil dependency, they were Artists for Peace in Canada and Manifestación Ciclonudista in Spain. Despite having virtually identical messages neither of these groups even knew of the existence of the other.

    Pretty Cool, huh?!

    I'll try to be there.

    BTW, we all know what FAQ stands for. It's not like someone tried to write stupid graffiti and wrote that someone was a faq. (I've seen that before, BTW.)
