the Polar Bear ride.

Yes the polar bears are pissed off about the loss of their natural habitat due to humanity’s pollution and climate change.

Their anger was expressed on Sunday with Time’s Up bicycle activists taking it to the streets in their annual Polar Bear Earth Day ride, which was canceled on Earth Day (4/23/12), due to rain…Irony?

Here is a brief recap and slideshow from the NY Times local East Village section:

Sunday’s Brrr-illiant Polar Bear Bike Ride
By: Tim Schreier
Published: April, 30th 2012

The reopening of First Park wasn’t the only thing washed out on Earth Day. The rain also put a damper on the Polar Bear Bike Ride, an annual fete organized by East Village-based organization Time’s Up. Lucky for us, it was rescheduled and took place yesterday in Union Square. The group has a knack for decorating bikes to send a message – as you can see from our slideshow it was on full display at the event, meant to encourage others to reduce their carbon footprint by cycling.

See the slideshow, here.
