For female mountain bikers, bike shorts with a good fit and a flattering look used to be hard to find. Thankfully in the last 5+ years, more and more bike apparel companies have started popping up — many of which are either women-specific companies or are at least designing women-specific gear.

But as you are about to hear, Cassie is not only running a women’s apparel company, she is working to change the entire business landscape for women.
