Painting the Town with the Kona Dew-E
Kona Ambassador Gretchen Leggitt is something of a renaissance woman. Whether climbing a crack on a giant granite wall, crushing monster rides on her gravel bike, running 20+ miles off the couch, or tearing apart one of Bellingham’s techy mountain bike trails, Leggitt has the skills to conquer anything. But her real talent lies in her artwork. For the past several years she’s been putting up huge murals all over the northwest and has literally painted the town with color. From massive mountain scapes to a recent art collaboration with Coast Salish painter Jason LeClair, Leggitt’s signature linework has almost single-handedly transformed Bellingham into a veritable work of art.
What does it take to create such intensely colorful pieces? A whole lotta spray paint and time. Fortunately, Leggitt is able to carry a hefty amount of gear and move quickly between pieces aboard her Dew-E DL. It’s fast, nimble, and incredibly practical. We think it’s a work of art, and we think they’re a match made in heaven.

Conditions were soft, we still had a blast riding but due to not being able to ride the full line during the 2020 session we decided to hold back on the footage and we returned to Royalhills this summer. And what a return it was...
