SpecialtiesCycling, Fly Fishing
For writer and outdoorswoman Kelly Bastone, gear-testing is just part of the daily routine: Her home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado puts world-class skiing, mountain biking, and fly-fishing right outside her door. Those daily adventures feed into her writing, which emphasizes outdoor sports, travel, fitness and nutrition. A Contributing Editor for Backpacker and Vail/Beaver Creek magazines and a Contributing Writer for 5280: The Denver Magazine, Bastone also contributes articles and photography to such publications as Runner's World, National Parks, Bicycling, Mountain, Sunset, and National Geographic Traveler. She lives with her husband Ben and three-year-old daughter, Simone, who likes nothing better than to chase frogs on the riverbank while her parents cast for trout.
