Here at Girls Gone Gravel, we LOVE female founders. Especially those as funky as Emily Kachorek. Emily is the co-founder of Squid Bikes - a boutique bike brand dedicated to creating bikes that look “different” in an undeniably recognizable way.

Prior to her endeavors with Squid Bikes, Emily was a professional road racer. In Emily’s words, she likes to ride “all the bikes, all the time”! Racing with the US National Team, she competed in multiple UCI World Cups for both road racing and cyclocross.

Kathryn and Kristi talk with Emily about her experience as a woman in the biking industry. Emily gives us a run-down of how she got to where she is today, and all of the “bumps” along the way.
