No pants, no problem for 'Subway Ride' participants

NEW YORK (CNN) - Many subway riders were caught with their pants down for the 10th annual 'No Pants Subway Ride' around the world Sunday.

It's like an urban 'Polar Bear Club,' but rather than jump into frigid water, participants rode around with their pants down and acted like nothing is unusual.

The first year attracted seven participants. This year, there were 4,000 to 5,000 in New York alone.

The event also took place on Washington DC's metro, San Francisco's BART, Chicago's CTA and in Baltimore.
