In the case of Kat Sweet, these things are numerous. Kat works with kids in the Cascade Bicycle Club’s Earn-A-Scraper program; teaches adult “girls” (and sometimes boys) how to huck just about anything in the freeride world; races with the Dirt Corps team; loves drum ‘n bass; and attends night school. One of her classes allowed her the opportunity to create a Tupac scraper bike with bling and quotes from the rapper.
When I started developing concepts for my June “Bike Culture” show, I definitely had to include Kat – and shoot her with the hot pink that’s omnipresent in her wardrobe.
This was the end result.
