Cafe Ride: Kate Quay raises awareness for "Cyclist's Syndrome"

By Reese Ruland

Published

On this episode of The Café Ride, we chatted with Kate Quay. Kate rode competitively for over a decade until she developed pudendal neuralgia, a pelvic floor condition, in 2018. After getting injured, she struggled to find information and support to aid in her recovery. To ensure this didn’t happen to other cyclists, Kate created the website pnandcycling.com to help spread information about pudendal neuralgia and provide hope to those currently experiencing symptoms. After taking 3+ years off the bike, she’s made a full recovery and wants to help spread the word that returning to riding after injury is possible.

The Café Ride is an Instagram Live conversation series dedicated to telling the stories of amazing women, building community, and educating and inspiring fellow cyclists. This conversation series features women from various aspects of the cycling community. You’ll meet and hear stories from women who are recreational athletes, product developers, nutrition experts, or professional cyclists. The goal is to inspire, educate, and connect women from all over the world.
