Hi! I’m Lauren. I have been ultra running, mountain biking and adventure racing for just about a decade now. I’m on a team of four bad ass women. We have been pushing ourselves further and further in the sport of adventure racing in the last few years. We have a MAJOR focus as a team on bringing new women to adventure sports. We know that it can be scary to toe the line in male-dominated spaces. And we want to constantly bridge that scary gap. My passion is the outdoors. I love to push myself beyond the limits of what I think I’m capable of. I have ridden my bike across the country, finished first in a couple trail running hundred-milers, and have finished the Barkley Fall Classic more than any other woman. I have taught mountain biking to woman. I have a podcast about women in adventure sports. I absolutely love picky bars and everything that the brand stands for. I had the great pleasure of meeting Lauren at Wilder a few years back and that really solidified my love for all things Picky. Love you guys and hope to hear back!
