Our Mission Statement:
Hi! We’re Nathan and April, founders of Natril Gear! We completed one of our “bucket list” items in 2010 by riding our bikes across the country! Luggers we found in stores weren’t very fun or bright, and certainly didn’t reflect the excitement we felt about our trip. So we made our own! For the entire 4,641 miles of our trip, our Luggers held up great and drew attention everywhere we traveled!
Our Luggers not only helped make us more visible on the road, but they made it a lot of fun too and inspired us to start a business helping other people have the same experience.
We would love for everyone to ride their bicycle across the USA, but really, our passion is to help you live YOUR passion, whatever that may be. We hope to be an inspiration simply by actively reaching for our dreams and encouraging you to do the same.
As far as cycling is concerned, we see innumerable benefits to encouraging cycling in our home town, throughout the country, and around the world. To that end, we are excited to introduce a refreshing new line of Luggers into the marketplace! Natril Gear’s Luggers are tough enough to travel across the country, packed with eye-catching appeal, and made using responsibly sourced materials and labor. Add some pizzazz to your bike with a Lugger, and ride on knowing that you’re helping to make the world a better place!
Here’s a picture of us on our trip with our homemade Luggers! To see our trip photo album, click here.
Along the theme of helping others try new things, we have taken up blogging about our new experiences, and we want to share that blog with you. You can find it at TheRoadTo.org. We documented each day of our cross-country bike trip (also packing lists, expenses, and resources), and we are also documenting what it’s like to start a business.
We welcome your readership of our blog and your involvement in the growing Natril Gear community! Let’s do something awesome with our lives together!
