Kat Sweet is a former professional downhill mountain bike racer and X-Games ski competitor who graduated from UW Bothell in 2011 with a degree in Society, Ethics & Human Behavior. As the creator of the mountain bike program, Sweetlines, Sweet recognizes the importance of using camaraderie to build courage in her programs and push riders to the next level.

Sweet produces events that mesh coaching with competition—such as the Sugar Showdown—and spends countless hours building and restoring mountain bike trails. She produced and starred in the movies, The Sisterhood of Shred, If She Can Do It, and was a guest rider in the movie Pedal Driven, and has been featured in numerous articles in Bike Magazine, Decline, Freehub, Wide Open Mag UK, ESPN Brazil, Momentum, NW Cyclist and Dirt Rag. Read more about her journey in this UW Bothell article.
