PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH US AS WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGING OUR WEBPAGE TO BE FRIENDLIER AND MORE INFORMATIONAL SO THAT THE 2018 BIKE RIDE CAN BE A GREAT YEAR
The 2018 Ride will be held on June 23rd, 2018
Please mark your calendar and plan for the event.
WHY WE RIDE:
ADVOCATING SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
Burning fossil fuels, no matter how efficiently, still pollutes our environment. Also no matter how much drilling and fracking we do, eventually we WILL run out of natural fossil fuel.
ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE LIVING
Burning fossil fuels is not the only way we are hurting our environment. Deforestation, strip mining, wasteful consumption for the purpose of building refineries, auto assembly plants, textile factories, etc are ways we are destroying the world we live in. The automotive and textile industry, although are important to our way of life, do produce a lot of waste products and uses a lot of materials that could be reduces by alternative and human powered transportation. Human powered transportation also encourages a healthy body and can reduce health costs in long term.
SAFE, HUMAN POWERED TRANSPORTATION
Riding your bike, using skateboards, scooters, roller blades, skates, and other human powered forms of transportation is not only good for your environment, but also great exercise for good health, family rides are great ways to encourage family exercise and recreation.
The main issue in most cities is the safety concern with sharing the road with cars and trucks.
WE RIDE TO: bring attention to this form of transportation so that people with automobiles learn to notice and recognize humans using natural human power as recreation or commuting transportation.
WHY WE RIDE NUDE
NOTICEABILITY AND BODY POSITIVE VALUES
It has been proven over the years of bike ride events that NAKED HUMANS get noticed faster than clothed riders, this combined with the fact that the naked human is a natural body regardless to ethnicity, gender or body structure and is neither lewd nor inappropriate in a public place, therefore we have riders of all ages, ethnicities, genders and body structures that are comfortable riding for the cause.
For safety reasons we do not encourage riders under 18 to be nude, however all riders do ride at their own discretion.
THEORY OF BODY POSITIVITY
Regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, body structure or any other reason you can think of, there is one thing that every human has in common; our bodies at birth were naked, and being nude is completely natural. We have been taught through years of prejudice that our bodies are shameful. It is time we recognize this simple fact and move beyond the prejudices and fears that destroy our society. We also need to accept that our bodies are not sexual objects or gross, disgusting or nasty and should not be treated as such or be used as an excuse to hate another person.
Many people are actually more comfortable nude than with clothing on but are restricted by laws and ordinances, peer pressures or discrimination and the more we ride nude, hopefully it will open peoples minds to the non sexual part of the human body so we can grow as a society to accept the right for everyone to be comfortable in their daily life.
we live in a "Christian based" society many of our laws are based on biblical theory, however we fail to realize that in biblical days clothing was utilized as a means to protect against weather conditions and to identify social status. Religious prejudice, however, has distorted the concept of clothing and developed a false teaching that nudity in itself is sinful or not condoned by God and therefore brought a way for governments and religious industry to control the way we think. The textile industry was developed and now profits from sexuality by convincing us that nudity is bad and clothing is needed. They use the pretense that nudity is sexual, but PROFIT by designing clothing that encourages sexual behavior and predjudice on the way someone looks. We now hypersexualize the human body and place judgement on others based on their clothing. While all this prejudice is going on, there is an obvious fact about nudity: Generally if nude, there is no way to differentiate social status, job titles, or economic status. Poor look like rich, doctors, lawyers, students, teachers, mechanics, stay at home moms, stay at home dads, whatever your position..you look pretty much just like everyone else, notwithstanding age, color, body structure and even with those differences, every body is natural and overcoming judgement is much easier when there are fewer factors.
