Nate King is THE LOCALS ARE PAINTING MY NAME ON THE ROADS.

I am King Grom, and I’m probably faster than you.

Why? Because I take myself seriously. So seriously, in fact, that I’ll randomly break into Kanye lyrics while rolling through the break with a cheeseburger in my fist. Or maybe it’s because my natural hematocrit is beyond UCI limits. In any case, I like going really fast on two wheels – pavement, dirt, and anywhere on Earth. Time trials, enduros, road races, alleycats, gravel grinders – if there’s a race number, a timer, and a bicycle, chances are I do it. My biggest claim to fame is going from road Cat 5 to Pro in a season, then squandering it all away by getting too damned skinny a year later.

My soul belongs to Colombia, and my heart belongs to a blonde bike racer named Kemi. When not pedaling I’m pondering new cookie concoctions, existential theory, making waffles, reading Steinbeck, tracking down the finest street food in whatever locale I find myself, riding my Ducati, and thinking of how to make the supreme pizza dough.

Wares are on freelance offer as hired copywriting gun, marketing consultant, editorial verbiage, content curation, and photographer.

Partners are Orbea Bicycles, Castelli, Reynolds Cycling, and BlendTec Blenders.
