Bottomless subway riders strike again in New York

275x250.jpg Hundreds of uninhibited New Yorkers have once again stripped off their trousers and skirts to participate in the 10th annual No Pants Subway Ride.

When the event launched 10-years-ago just seven people took part, yesterday an estimated 3,500 bared their legs and braved sub-freezing temperatures.

At 3pm the subway riders met at six points across the city before boarding subway trains and taking off their trousers or skirts. If asked why they'd removed their pants (trousers) participants said they were 'getting uncomfortable'.

After disembarking the trains the leg-baring subway riders stood on the platform admiring each others underwear… and confusing the life out of other passengers.

"The mission started as a small prank and has grown into an international celebration of silliness.

"The 10th Annual No Pants Subway Ride went off without a hitch today in New York. We are estimating 3,500 participants."

There were also No Pants rides in 50 other cities around the world in 24 countries
