    I can’t believe people are actually doing this. Don’t get me wrong, i think the Hasids should go fuck themselves for getting the bike lanes taken out, but why would you purposely offend a major group of people by streaking through their neighborhood? I’m sure there are more mature, and more affective ways to get the bike lanes back. What I don’t get is why is this whole thing called “Hasids vs. Hipsters”? These people aren’t hipsters, at least, not how the negative definition now defines them, they just want to ride a bike in safety. And as for the whole “minivan of death” thing, fuck hasids and all anti bike people.

    Say…wasn’t this supposed to be a NAKED ride? Did the windchill and snow scare them off?

    I’m with Evan — there’s got to be a better way to protest than rubbing the neighborhood’s face in doughy, hairy near-naked flesh.

    They have my support and awe, but I gotta say. (Simpson’s Comic Book Guy voice) Worst timing EVER! (/voice)
    I learned a long time ago riding semi nude in a blizzard is a BAD IDEA.

    Disrespecting others will not win support for bicyclists.

    Bike lanes are only a means to an end, they don’t guarantee a safe or even a good commute/ride.
