Loose Riders Global AllianceThe Club:
Loose Riders is a mountain bike club, focusing on all things gravity/bike related. What started in 2012 with a single Facebook page has grown into an international network of riders with chapters in Chiang Mai Thailand, Singapore, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Belgium, Christchurch, Queenstown with more to be announced.
Our mission is to connect riders all over the world, on a local level. Say you want to go ride in Thailand, New Zealand, Belgium … or wherever we have a chapter? Just hit up the local LOOSE RIDERS chapter for the best local knowledge from finding trails or somewhere to stay and party.
It doesn't matter if you are a newbie or a complete shredder, LOOSE RIDERS is all about getting out there, getting Loose and not taking taking life to seriously, on or off the bike.

In 2013 we expanded and started a clothing line based on the need for straight forward, quality, affordable gear that would hold up to the abuse of gravity oriented bike riding.
Feeling that the “pro/pyjama” segment of the market has been taken care of we set out to create a line that has more old school flavour and is wearable on or off the bike. Normal fitting gear that won’t fall apart after a crash or a few washes, but when you do wreck hard enough to trash a jersey, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get a new one.We’re proud to introduce our 2014 Pro team riders

This edit was filmed during a month long road trip in October/November 2013 in Thailand that featured team riders Nico Vink and Ed Masters.
We started off in the capital city of Bangkok and headed to the beach towns of Hua Hin, Rayong and surrounding areas to ride, hang out and party with the locals. After some southern shenanigans we made our way up to northern city of Chiang Mai to compete in the Chiang Mai Downhill Challenge 2.
The CDC 2 was a fun race organized by the LOOSE RIDERS Chiang Mai Chapter which was attended by Steve Peat, Josh Bryceland, Wyn Masters and Sam Dale.
After an epic couple of weeks of riding and mayhem we waved goodbye to Ed Masters and headed back down south to Rayong. Plagued by bad weather and more than a few hangovers we still managed to find some rad terrain to ride and were able to wrap up the edit by building Nico’s quarry line.
We all had a great time and we hope this edit shows what we are all about. We would like to thank all those who helped out along the way.
An extra thanks goes out to Bart Cautaerts for photos, video and sick edit and Mike Sakas
for the extra footage and awesome photography.
