What do you get when you combine a professional graphic designer and a professional bike racer? Starla Teddergreen. Starla has a storied career racing for some of the most prolific teams in the United States including the crit conquering Team Vanderkitten and Fearless Femme. Starla is heavily involved with Play Hard Give Back an organization uniting athletes with advocacy and She Jumps whose mission is to increase the participation of women and girls in outdoor activities. Obviously, Starla is a great fit with KindHuman Bicycles and our culture. She also happens to be one of the most enigmatic racers on the road today and we are proud to have her racing for KindHuman Bicycles and guest riding for some of the nation’s top teams on our Kampionne at USA Crit and NRC events all season long. Starla had this to say about the new partnership, “I’m super excited to partner with KindHuman Bicycles. It’s always been a company I admire and respect because they focus on making performance cycling more accessible to all riders by offering responsibly priced, top-quality, hot-looking products and a personal experience to match. KindHuman also gives back to the community via scholarships, charity, and supporting youth in cycling; we share the same values, and I’m happy to be a part of that mission.”

Moreover, we will be collaborating with Starla on limited edition, Starla Designs projects. These special release projects will combine Starla’s creative expertise with our high-performance products. We’re excited to showcase her talents on our products and offer them to riders everywhere! Starla commented on these future projects, “I am really looking forward to the design collaboration opportunities ahead! It’s going to be an awesome experience, and for the first time, fans will have access to not only the bikes I ride but bikes I design with the KindHuman team!”

Starla continued, “I have personally experienced and witnessed how cycling can change a person’s life for the better. People’s stories, how they got into cycling, and how they are giving back to the sport is what makes this sport special to me. I respect achievements and podiums, and strive for them myself, but that’s not what keeps me in this sport. Being able to inspire and encourage others to live healthy, active lives and to fuel someone’s passion for cycling is what inspires me to keep going and building a strong, positive cycling community. I am honored to be part of the KindHuman family, to share my story on and off the bike, with hopes to inspire others.”

We will also see Starla participating in ‘cross and mountain events in 2016. Starla had this to say regarding her 2016 plans, “The 2016 season will be the first in my career in which I get to race without a particular role, so I’ll be pushing myself into some new areas, and hopefully amplifying the places where I’m strong. I’m also looking forward to guest riding with some awesome teams, and to try my hand at racing more in the dirt! “
