Kathryn Bertine Biography

Kathryn Bertine is an author, athlete, activist, and documentary filmmaker. During her pro career in cycling, she was a three-time Caribbean Champion, six-time national champion of St. Kitts and Nevis (SKN) and raced five years on pro circuit with four UCI domestic and World Tour teams Colavita, Wiggle-Honda, BMW and Cylance Pro Cycling. She retired from racing in 2017 but remains active in advancing equity for women’s pro cycling.

Off the bike, Bertine is a filmmaker, activist, journalist and author of four books: "All the Sundays Yet to Come," "As Good As Gold," "The Road Less Taken," and "Stand: A Memoir on Activism. A manual for Progress. What Really Happens When We Stand on the Front Lines of Change." From 2006 through 2012, Bertine was a columnist, author, and senior editor for ESPN. When she pitched a documentary film on women’s pro cycling to ESPN in 2012, they rejected the proposal. So Bertine decided she would make it herself. After a two-year labor of love and crowdsourcing adventures, in 2014, "Half the Road: The Passion, Pitfalls and Power of Women’s Professional Cycling" was released. It won five film festivals, debuted in 16 nations, scored international distribution and successfully brought the hammer down on the corruption and sexism in sports.

As an advocate for equality in women’s sports, Bertine then started the social activism movement Le Tour Entier in an effort to bring parity to women’s professional road cycling, starting with the Tour de France. She and her team succeeded, and women’s field was included in 2014 with the addition of La Course by Tour de France. She founded and currently serves as CEO for the Homestretch Foundation, which provides free housing to female professional athletes struggling with the gender pay gap. Bertine was featured on the cover of Bicycling Magazine and profiled in Outside Magazine for her platforms of implementing change in the world.

Bertine continues to serve as a public speaker on equality and advocacy. She shares her journey and her message — that through passion, disruption, opportunity, and focus, anything is possible and we’re all capable of effecting change — with corporations, universities, and other professional outlets. A native of Bronxville, NY she lives in Tucson, AZ. She holds a BA from Colgate University and an MFA from the University of Arizona and a PhD from The School of Hard Knocks.
