Portland Cops: Naked Bike Ride Legal ALLLLLLLLLLLLLL Year Long

I’m told by the PPB that riding naked on your bike isn’t illegal unless you’re a pervert. 
They, however, have no way of knowing if that guy riding naked around the school is a pervert or simply a carefree, car free, exhibitionist. Apparently you have to take the Anthony Weiner test and someone has to get worked up over it before anyone can be arrested. 

I asked about this yesterday because of the naked bike ride. The naked bike ride is an excuse to take over the streets, get drunk, grab somebody’s bike and ride it to “make a statement.” 
The “statement” is MANY statements. Apparently they can’t keep the rationale straight.

Herewith are some of the excuses I read, saw, heard for riding in the naked bike ride:

To cut down on foreign fuel use (no, I’m not kidding). Do you know how many of those people at a bean burrito before riding? I rest my case.
To use as a metaphor for how naked bicyclists are out there on the streets.
To express their hatred for cars.
To get drunk, get naked and get crazy! 
To get to the all ages after party. BYOB, kids! 
To see how long the city and cops will draft for you on the way to Sodom.

Naked Bike Ride: How Much OT Did Tax Payers Pay for This?

Seventy four officers worked the event and apparently 14 required overtime? See the sign up sheet below.


I understand keeping people in line etc, but the city tacitly  overtly approves of lawbreaking by giving the naked anarchists, drunks and perverts cover.
It’s good to be protected from these knuckleheads, but giving them official city sanction is a perversion and continues to invite other law breaking.
Maybe that’s the idea, scare away what families you have left in Portland by simply making it a play ground for perverts.

"Bike Boulevards" Become "Greenways." Call It What You Like ,It Still Comes Down to a War on Cars and Freedom

They’re changing the name of something because it reveals the city’s priorities and, frankly, people are noticing and don’t like it. That’s my opinion and it’s certainly what I’m hearing from the ‘just folks’ around Portland. The name change revelation is reported in the Portland Tribune (here):
City officials found the term bicycle boulevard doesn’t do justice to the neighborhood greenway projects, Chisek says, because they also improve pedestrian safety and help slow traffic in neighborhoods.

We’re all adults and know what’s going on here. The name “bike boulevard” shows it for what it is: a diss on everyone else. Now they’re putting a green veneer on it for PC, PR and probably $$ reasons (grant money, anyone?)
Portland has been doing a slow drive-by on cars for years. Liking bicyclists doesn’t automatically mean you hate cars. But I believe Portland long ago crossed the line into official car hating, if you will. Just take a look at this top of the head/back of the envelope list I came up with this morning to show you the shape of the anti car attitude.
