    Up with bikes, down with pants!

    Well if that ain't the darndest thing.

    I live on a quiet road in downtown Madison. I just saw about 10 people on bikes ride by, all wearing nothing but their undies. As they went by, one person yelled "Up with bikes!" and the rest of the group answered "Down with pants!"

    That was just fantastic.

    well if they slipped off the seat and landed on the bar it would be a real safety issue don't you think? with nothing to soften the blow, ouchy!

    That order would be much less painful than "Down with pants, up with bikes"

    Uhhh I would not want to know what would happen if one of them took a spill. I mean they could rip off their undies.

    On second thoughts there would also be terrible road rash.....

    I'm guessing they were inspired by World Naked Bike Day.

    "Up with bikes" sure sounds like advocacy to me.
