August 9, 2005 – In celebration of the departure of the Molson Indy from Vancouver, the sixth annual Wholesome Undie “Victory Ride” will take to the streets of Vancouver with the rallying cry: “less gas, more ass!”. 12 It takes place Noon, Sunday, August 14
The Wholesome Undie will begin with a Briefing at 12:30 p.m. at the gazebo in Creek Side Park, just south of Science World (Quebec and Terminal). Racers will tune their machines and do final race inspections. At 1:00 p.m. the team of Undie Riders will roll through the streets. The ride will occupy the roadway, not blocking traffic because… WE ARE TRAFFIC.
Slow Sexy and Smart, the Wholesome Undie features riders on bicycles, skateboards, and rollerbladers — dressed in their undies!
The Wholesome Undie got rid of the Molson Indy with its fearsome undie power. Apparently, the motorized mega-event was so scared of our underwear they’d rather leave town than see us in it. Now it’s time to get rid of the proposed Highway 1 freeway expansion — the Gateway Project.
Undie racers will re-claim the streets with their elegant, inexpensive, human-powered vehicles. Instead of the roar of combustion engines, they will serenade the city with bells, songs and raps, and the whisper of fine lingerie. The Undie won’t cause any pollution, since Undie racers emit only natural gas. Undie vehicles don’t go as fast, but they go in style.
The winner will be presented the fabulous and coveted Undie D-Cup by race officials.
The Wholesome Undie encourages people to get back to basics, and reminds this region that STREETS ARE FOR PEOPLE, NOT CARS. Wholesome Undie riders say “Gentlemen, Stop Your Engines!”
