LORIEN GORDON

Owner

I’m Lorien from Reading, Berkshire. I ride a Saracen Myst 29 and a Commencal Meta power. I love my bikes and my Mrs would say I love them more than her!

 

I got into biking way later than most about 3 years ago. I happened to randomly see a video of a downhill run on facebook and I was just wowed by how awesome it looked so I bought a really old Kona and started mucking about. I hit an unofficial race at a local track. I actually had no idea what I was doing and thought I was going to die haha! The local guys were actually cool about it and made me feel welcome into the community.

 

My favourite ride/trail is an odd one. I love the unofficial trail from Super Morzine that heads down into town under the gondola. The steepness and tech is just insane. Its just roots and rocks everywhere!  

 

My most challenging ride has to be the Coed-y-Brenin beast. That day actually killed me. It was physically the hardest thing ever but it was also some of the best riding I’ve ever experienced. Some of that single track is pretty special.

 

Look out for me at some closer places to me like Windhill, Rogate and FOD. I also love a big day out at BMCC and Revs! You’ll also catch me at races around the South more going into the next season.

KATE HOWSER

Owner

I’m Kate, a co-owner of The bike Supply Drop Company. I started riding in 2015 as a way of channelling my grief after losing my brother to mental health, something I also struggle with. I signed up to RatRace The Crossing after only riding a month and had done a maximum of 10 miles off road around the flatlands that I live. Somehow, I survived the 200 miles coast to coast in 3 days raising over £4000 for Mind, but it took me a lot longer to be able to look at my bike again. 


Fast forward a year and my bike took me to places I never knew existed both mentally and physically. Been lots of ups and downs along the way, many broken bones, tears and blood but I love the freedom biking gives you and have also met the most incredible people who have become my best friends. 


I have recently bought a Canyon sender as I want to get more into DH riding than trail riding but my Commencal will always have a sweet spot for me. 


I absolutely love being part of this sport and starting this company is a great way to get even more involved in the industry. It really is part of me, and the team we have is passionate and all give something special. Watch this space, there are big things coming....
