Less Gas, More Ass
Former Westword photographer Brett Amole, son of late Rocky Mountain News scribe Gene Amole, got some nice media exposure when CNN ran a KUSA local TV news story about Boulder’s June 14 naked bike ride.
The daytime jaunt, part of World Naked Bike Ride — , or World Naked Bike Day, which is held in seventy cities in twenty countries — was created to encourage people to use their bikes, especially now that gas prices are so high and the world is so dependent on oil: “Less Gas, More Ass,” as the slogan goes.
Amole, dressed only in a Statue of Liberty hat, an American-flag loincloth and his camera, told the TV news reporter that the riders got a great reception. “We’re a gentle protest,” he said. “We’re a fun protest, but the message is very real.”
