. The show up in purple to fight this last time as one unified bike ride. We ride in purple as one unified being together as humans.
Where all purple to symbolize you discuss in This  imperialism and capitalism that's back from the dead
This is being used with other attempts to remove ourselves from within ourselves. Its a distraction that pulls focus away from what's real and instead focuses on what we are or appear on the outside. This racism is a card being okayed and played by capitalist.
Lets ride as one.
This fascist attempt to cause hate is not tolerated. Bike for a stop. This ride goes over state boarder. That's federal. We will line I 205 bike lanes with signs against this. If you feel nudity will make a change towards this feel free to come Bare as you dare.
