Padraig and Patria
The Paceline is hosted by Patrick Brady and Patria Vandermark.
Patria is the co-owner and manager of two Boston-area bike shops, Ride Studio and Ride Headquarters. The Colorado native raced at an elite level before chucking it all to go to the land of her forebears. She moved to Italy, learned the language and then began leading bike tours for American visitors. At CU Boulder she earned a degree in mechanical engineering; she says working on bikes is both more fulfilling and more fun.
Patrick is the publisher of The Cycling Independent.
