This week on the podcast, Kathryn and Kristi sit down with Kathryn Bertine. Kathryn is the CEO of Home Stretch Foundation, a former Cycling Pro and ESPN Columnist. She is also the author of the book STAND: A memoir on activism. A manual for progress. What really happens when we stand on the front lines of change.
Kathryn shares her journey to create lasting change in the cycling community, why women deserve a Tour de France, and fighting sexism and gender inequality in cycling.She opens up about the toll her journey has on her mental health and knowing when it’s time to get help.
Kathryn also directed the documentary Half the Road, a film that explores the world of women’s professional cycling, focusing on both the love of sport and the pressing issues of inequality that modern-day female riders face in a male-dominated sport.
