After spending half a year thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Kate was searching for a way to spend more time outdoors in her daily life. She ultimately moved from Boston to Vermont to be closer to the mountains and soon discovered mountain biking and the incredibly supportive community that surrounds the sport. She’s passionate about anything and everything outdoors, including trail running, hiking and backpacking. Every day she’s motivated and inspired by the countless women in her community and beyond who push their limits and have an enormous amount of fun doing so. This season, she’s extremely excited to explore new trails, continue to challenge herself and meet others who enjoy riding as much as she does!
