UPDATE: Details for NYC / Details for other cities

The 10th Annual No Pants Subway Ride will take place on Sunday, January 9 in New York City. More info with the meeting point and start time will be posted to this site in early January. For now, save the date. You can RSVP on Facebook.

Once again we are encouraging folks in other cities around the world to stage their own No Pants rides on the same day. Here is the list of cities who participated last year. Anyone organizing a regional No Pants event should let us know by leaving a comment on this post along with all of the necessary details. The lead organizer must also send us an email via our contact form. In a few weeks we will publish a list of all participating cities along with links to any Facebook events. Groups have staged the event on trolleys, light rails, and buses in the past, so don’t let a lack of subway system stop you! 44 cities participated last year. Check the list linked above to see if one happened in your city last year before trying to start your own (preference will go to the prior year’s organizers.)

If you are unfamiliar with this tradition, you can read the history here: The No Pants Subway Ride.

    Melbourne Australia will be happily participating once again.

  2. Betty says:

    We are more ready than ever! Had almost a month now of snowy, chilly weather to practise. Lots of eager people have their pants already half way down.
    We will definitely beat last years 8 participants and all time high in Stockholm. (Our very first NoPant Ride was 2010)

  3. Remi Coker says:

    No Pants Bike Ride/Public Transportation Ride. Either in Amsterdam (anybody else started it yet?) or in Maastricht in the southern tip of the Netherlands.

    Let me know if you’re interested!!!

  4. Bryn Busai says:

    Adelaide, Australia will be happily participating once again.

        Hello Los Angeles and welcome to the 3rd Annual No Pants Metro Ride!

        Ride the train just as anyone would on any given normal day, just without pants (note that this is NO PANTS day, not NO UNDERWEAR day. We don’t want anyone arrested for indecent exposure). We’d like to emphasize the importance of acting casual – like pantslessness is a normal thing – and acting like you do not know any of your fellow riders nor why they are also pantsless. More info to come . .

  63. james says:

    For New York City, there seems to be less people will participate this year than last year. Last year almost 7000 responded attending on fb, this year the # has not reached 5000. Is it possible the event will loss its popularity in the near future?

    • Charlie says:

      Pretty crazy that an event that has been promoted with one email, one blog post, one tweet, and two facebook updates only has 4700 RSVPs on Facebook.

      (Patience, James. It’s 12 days away.)

  64. São Paulo
    Meeting point: Parque da Luz entrance (in front of Estação da Luz)
    We’ll meet there at 2pm to start organizing and going out at 4pm.
