Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues – specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

Last year, Movember had its most successful year to date, with over 850,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the globe raising a phenomenal US$126.3 million to change the face of men’s health. The hairy movement continues to grow, with official campaigns in many countries.

In Costa Rica, at 6:30pm Friday (Movember 15) Chepecletas has organized the “ChepeCleteada en calzoncillos” (bike tour in boxers) for downtown San José.

Similar to their event last month against breast cancer, everyone is invited to participate.

The men are asked to wear a thong, boxer or briefs.

Regardless of gender or age, put on your boxers and pedal around San José.

To participate, in addition to the boxers, riders will have to have their bicycle (cleta, slang in Costa Rica) in good condition, a helmet, reflective vest and ligths.

The tour starts in Parque España (the part in front of the INS building). The route will take you to: theParque Francia, Escuela Buenaventura C., Av. 1era, Steinvorth, Colegio Señoritas, Boulevar Paseo de los Estudiantes, Av. 2da, Museo Nacional/Plaza Democracia, Parque Nacional and back to the Parque España.
