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.
