Kate Emmons

Kate has been passionate about riding ever since moving to Vermont. After spending half a year thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, she knew being close to the mountains was key to an adventure-filled lifestyle. She had no idea the amazing riding she would discover in her new home state. She loves spending early spring mornings linking up gravel roads nearby, and summer afternoons on the local mountain bike trails. Through riding, trail work, and post-ride hangs, Kate enjoys sharing this passion with so many others in her community. She finds excitement in setting seasonal goals and is always thrilled to see other women getting on bikes. Kate is constantly inspired by the supportive women in the cycling community and really enjoys the sport for that reason. This season she’s looking forward to challenging herself with long days in the saddle linking up local trails and new bikepacking adventures.
