What I was not doing this weekend... participating in the World Naked Bike Ride!

Of course, it's a protest against global warming:
The naked cyclists - and others with strategically-placed body paint, sticky tape or bum bags - were highlighting the damage caused by car dependency.
Here I am, 33 years old, and I've never even heard of a bum bag.
One of the participants explains the larger point of the World Naked Bike Ride:
He said: "We are seeing an increasing number of stories of melting ice caps and Antarctica crumbling away and no government is doing anything serious about this.
"They are paying lip service to the problem so people have been taking to their bikes, unclothing, to express their feelings about it."
Never talk about paying lip service to a problem when you're bike riding naked.
Want pictures? Of course you do!
That's the World Naked Cyclists in Mexico City. Hope these Mexicans don't want amnesty here, too!
Here they are in Vancouver:
Awww, too bad it rained! Good weather in London, though:
A perfect day for a naked bike ride! And, now everybody believes in global warming!
