Forget #visionzero how about zero clothing. Yesterday (6/13/14) was a subdued World Naked Bike Ride in NYC. Here is a full frontal report form Time’s Up Ben Shepard.
A Hard Rains Gonna Fall: Vision zero clothing ride 2014
A clothing-optional bike ride in solidarity with the World Naked Bike Ride. While the new regime of New York City pays lip service #VisionZero , we will show what safer streets for humans really look like. We demand free assembly, free speech, free movement and safe expression for our bodies and ideas. #VisionZero harassment, #VisionZero cars, #VisionZero hate, #visionzero shame, #visionzero pollutants in our physical and mental environment.
Active participants required. Pants optional.
For more report and a ton of photos ride on over here.
And it just couldn’t be an true bicycle event in NYC without some police intervention. Apparently two undercovers (not naked bike riders) pulled in front of the ride and claimed “You can’t ride around with your dick hanging out.” Two cyclists were arrested for lewdness and indecent exposure according to Shepard who was on the whole event in the pour rain…lets not forget.
Also here is a Raw video:
