Endura global baggies day

On May 13, Ditch the Grind and Ride — It’s Global Baggies Day

Scottish cycling brand Endura has issued a rebel yell to all baggy-wearing riders. On May 13, grab your shorts, check your tires, and play a little hooky.

What’re you up to this Friday? You know what, it doesn’t matter. Call in sick, take a long lunch, reschedule that dental appointment — whatever you gotta do to fit a ride in. Just don’t forget your baggy shorts.

What’s the big idea, you ask? May 13, 2022, is Global Baggies Day, a totally contrived holiday that Endura’s made up so we can all “forget about the more serious parts of the daily grind for a day.”

Sound like your kind of rebellion? Ours too. Here’s all you need to know.

How to Take Part in Global Baggies Day

  • Who: All riders — MTB riders, gravel grinders, BMXers, roadies (we’d love to see some roadies in baggy shorts, honestly)
  • When: May 13, 2022
  • Where: Everywhere
  • Why: Why not?
  • How: Baggy up and hit the trail/asphalt/whatever, then post your proof to social media, and tag @enduraofficial #GlobalBaggiesDay

As far we can tell, Global Baggies Day isn’t some big promotional stunt. The prize for participating? A little community connection — and getting to SHRED on a school day. Ahhhh yeah.
