No Trousers on the Tube Day 2013

Snow predicted this weekend, so get timing for the fourth, annual
No Trousers on the Tube Ride which will take place on Sunday 13th January 2013. As part of the Global No Pants Subway Ride, last year over 150 brave travellers made their way around the London Underground sans trousers. This year over 450 people are already signed up to take part.

The requirements are simple:

1) Willingness to take trousers off on the Tube
2) Ablility to keep a straight face about it

Full details are on the Facebook page but in a nutshell the plan is to turn up at an allocated spot in China town at 3pm where you will be divided into groups. The aim is to then travel from Leicester Square Tube and go around another seven zone one stops as nonchalantly & casually as possible with no trousers on.

As Rammi one of the organisers says "You can wear fun underwear if you like, but nothing that screams out, “I wore this because I’m doing a silly stunt.” Wear two pairs of underwear if it makes you feel more comfortable. Don’t wear a thong or anything else that might offend people. Our aim is to make people laugh, not piss them off

We want this event to be fun and safe for everyone, so anybody found to be removing more than their trousers will be kicked off the train and reported to the British Transport Police and station authorities.
