Did you wear pants on Sunday? Now WHY did you do that?! It was the 13th annual No-Pants Subway Ride day! We even gave you advance warning. It’s like you’re not even TRYING to take your pants off.
Thankfully, you can watch this recap while reclining pantless in the comfort of your own home:
On Sunday, January 12th, 2014 tens of thousands of people took off their pants on subways in over 60 cities in over 25 countries around the world. In New York, our 13th Annual No Pants Subway Ride had over 4,000 participants, spread out over seven meeting points and eleven subway lines.No thanks to YOU, spoilsport. (We concede that driving pantless to church or the mall doesn’t quite have the same effect.) Participants ranged from 3 months old to 71, which means you REALLY have no excuse. Start preppin’ for 2015 now, Lord Hiddencalf!

On Sunday, January 12th, 2014 tens of thousands of people took off their pants on subways in over 60 cities in over 25 countries around the world. In New York, our 13th Annual No Pants Subway Ride had over 4,000 participants, spread out over seven meeting points and eleven subway lines. Enjoy the video first (the one above) and then go behind the scenes with our mission report and photos.
No Pants Subway Ride 2014 Generals:
If you’re unfamiliar with this event, you might want to first read our history of The No Pants Subway Ride. Since this is the 13th year we’ve done this, there’s not too much to report other than it was another awesome time. Below are a small selection of photos that jumped out to me as being fun and new, compared to previous editions. Enjoy!
Every year we have a contest at the meeting point to see who the oldest and youngest participant are. The oldest this year was 71. The youngest, pictured above, was 3 months!
Although the event has happened for over a decade, there are always people who are seeing it for the first time. This year we apparently surprised a New Kid on the Block.
It’s always fun seeing the new countries that join in each year. The above photo was from Bangalore, one of two cities in India that took part.
People participating in Beijing!
A family participates in Mexico City. The Mexico City ride continues to be the biggest regional ride, with over 1,000 participants this year.
Thanks to our editing team that got the video done in under 24 hours. These guys didn’t sleep.
Once again the No Pants Subway Ride happened around the world, with many cities making their debut this year. You can find links to photos and articles in the comments on this page: Regional Agent Reports.
We announce the date of the No Pants Subway Ride every year in early December. If you’re interested in participating in 2015 in New York or anywhere else in the world, sign up for our mailing list, follow us on twitter, and like us on Facebook so you’ll be the first to hear about it.
