Bare it all at Calgary's 2020 No Pants C-Train ride on January 12

Jan 6 2020, 8:55 am

If riding the C-Train without any pants on is a recurring nightmare that your mind simply won’t shake, you’ve finally got a chance for some immersion therapy.

A No Pants C-Train ride is planned for January 12 as part of the global No Pants Subway Ride – an annual event held by Improv Everywhere that has seen pants-less tushes on public transit for 18 years and counting.

The no pants rides started out as a harmless prank in New York City, and has since spread across the world, with dozens of cities participating every winter.

The idea is that everyone simply rides the subway/C-Train as if nothing were amiss, fully garbed in regular winter wear… with the exception of pants.

An exception that may be well-missed in Calgary, as temperatures this week are expected to plunge below freezing.

Any and all are welcome to join in on the no pants ride this Sunday, with participants meeting at the Palomino Smokehouse and Social Club at 3:30 pm before making the pants-less journey.
