Patria is the embodiment of Ride Studio Cafe. She defines the Studio – in all the positive ways that statement could be interpreted. No easy feat with me in the way. I may have started the Studio project but Patria has taken the concept farther than I ever could. She has a capacity for work that is shocking. She’s way too smart. And she can kick a mortal cyclist’s butt on a road bike.
Patria’s title at the Studio is “Curator and Co-Owner.” Interesting that neither of those titles really suits: “Curator” would be more apt as Maker; Patria isn’t simply curating the Studio, she’s making it happen every day. “Co-Owner” seems too partial; drop the “Co-” and that’s more like it.
Patria’s got lots of ideas and twice the energy to make them happen. I can’t wait to see where the Studio heads in the coming year with Patria at the helm. Grab hold of something and hang on.
