As we lean back into the 10 Tracks feature here at YGR, we welcome Kat Steele as our first DJ in a spell. Kat moved to Fort Collins eight months ago and has been very active in the scene, especially within the Women/Trans/Femme/Non-Binary space. Kat runs WTF Bike, which helps the previously mentioned and often marginalized riders “learn about all kinds of cycling, learn new skills, and develop communities where they are respected and accepted.” Get to know more about Kat and take her playlist for a spin below.
