Kathryn Bertine is devoted to Women’s Cycling.
If the last few years are any indication, the lack of equity between men’s and women’s professional cycling finally may have met its match in Kathryn Bertine. The 40-year-old, Tucson-based pro cyclist is also a writer, filmmaker (her documentary “Half the Road” explores inequalities faced by professional female bike racers), and an advocate who is a driving force behind the wildly successful petition in 2013 that led to La Course by Le Tour de France, a first-of-its-kind women’s race held in Paris on the final day of the Tour.
In 2015, Bertine began working with Tucson-based nonprofit El Grupo Youth Cycling as a mentor/coach helping young kids get into cycling for fitness and to gain leadership/life skills. Via bicycling.com
