Turn Loose is on a mission to spread passion and enthusiasm by sharing stories, selling quality good-looking gear, and sponsoring inspiring people and projects. To start, all profits this season will be used to sponsor up-and-coming mountain bike athletes with CASH support in 2017. Join the community, get some sweet new Turn Loose apparel, and feel good about where your money is going. We'll be rolling out new designs all summer and want YOU to be a part of building Turn Loose, so stay tuned and stay connected!
What's the story?
My name is Lauren Gregg, and I am a professional mountain biker. I am living my dream- based out of a van and traveling the globe riding my bike. After nearly a decade of racing bikes and hustling hard to make this lifestyle work, it finally fell into place this year and I couldn't be more grateful. I now have the freedom to do what I love every day. As the dust started to settle from working hard to carve out this life for myself, I knew I wanted to start sharing this stoke with others.
What's Turn Loose?
I want to help inspire people to go out and do more of what makes them happy. Sharing stories of people doing what they love, taking risks, going outside of their comfort zones- this is powerful and can motivate people to chase their dreams and start organizing their lives with a new focus. You don't have to quit your job and move into a van, or ride mountain bikes every day, but simply finding and pursuing your passions can change your life. I think if we start supporting enthusiasm, chasing dreams instead of paychecks, and seeking adventure instead of comfort, the world would be a better place.
Let's turn ourselves loose!
How will Turn Loose support the cause?
Money. It's a common issue holding people back from pursuing dreams, projects, and adventures. Many people dream big, and they just need a little bit of funding to get started. This is where Turn Loose comes in. I love brands that I can feel good about supporting. I also saw a need for more artistic and quality apparel in my community, so the idea to create Turn Loose gear was born. We're launching with 3 rad shirts and will have lots more designs to roll out all summer, so stay tuned! Profits will be used to support dreams and big ideas- giving you some rad new apparel that you can feel good about buying. If someone has an idea for a project, if someone needs some funding to help chase a dream, they will be able to come to Turn Loose for cash support.
Where do we start?
Pro athletes are what originally inspired my own dream, so I knew that supporting tomorrow's athletes was a great way to support the mission of Turn Loose. In my personal career, getting cash support has always been a major struggle. A lack of funding almost ended my career. It's an issue that's dear to my heart, and something I'd love to help alleviate. Turn Loose's profits this season will be used to sponsor up-and-coming mountain bike athletes with cash support in 2017. Focusing on their training and burning ambition is tough enough without worrying about things like gas money or paying race registration fees.
