Los Angeles got a brief respite from winter on Sunday, thus making conditions ideal for the annual No Pants Subway Ride.

With temps getting into the 70s and the sun mostly shining, participants in the event, facilitated by GuerilLA, could comfortably ride from Union Station all the way to downtown Santa Monica—a first for the No Pants ride after the opening of the Expo Line's second phase.

Not everyone on the train, of course, was joining in on the festivities, thus making for some puzzled onlookers. If asked by other riders why they're not wearing pants, participants were told to simply say, "I forgot them."

The No Pants Subway Ride was a brainchild of New York's Improv Everywhere, and took place across the country. Check out the No Pants riders in New York and Chicago.
