After being rained out during Earth Day weekend, the members of environmental advocacy group Time's Up finally staged their PolarBearCon Ride this past weekend. The event was meant to raise awareness for the plight of the endangered polar bear; riders accomplished this by cycling through the city in goofy costumes (some people even hitched mocked-up icebergs to the backs of their bikes).
