SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY (BRAIN)—SICI (Serotta International Cycling Institute) has hired Kathleen Krumme as its new executive director.
Krumme’s love affair with cycling has spanned nearly two decades, first as an amateur triathlete, road racer and time trialist, then later as a specialist in bike fitting and custom bike sales. She has performed more than 2,500 fittings since 1996 and became a Serotta Advanced Bike fit Specialist in 2002. She has served as a core instructor for the SICI since its inception.
Krumme will partner with Paraic McGlynn, who continues as the director of applied cycling science and the Serotta Fitlab, and David Ariosa, newly appointed director of finance.
