From Kona Bikes: Riding is an inherently solo sport – which means it’s easy to forget that working with others is the key that can unlock the next level of what we’re grinding so hard to accomplish.   

Patty V and Colleen Meas are two professional creatives who have been banging their fists against the door of the cycling community, wanting desperately to break into the tight-knit media of its industry.

This International Women’s Day, we’re honored to be able to shine a light on Patty and Colleen’s collaboration journey and bring attention to the women who are out there kicking ass and kicking down doors with their hard work. Asking for help is incredibly hard, but remembering to answer and offer peer mentorship is something that we simply need to make time for– because odds are, it will make all the difference in the world.
