While men can’t be active members of the Pedal Pusher Society, they can be our allies! The PPS is challenging the male dominated bike culture and more largely, male privilege as a whole, but those who have male-privilege have the power to change how it’s leveraged personally and systematically! This means that men can work on creating welcoming environments where everyone is empowered and supported. To start, men can encourage and support the women and trans folks in their lives by speaking up and acting when they witness sexism and homophobia and can talk with each other about how male privilege effects their lives. On occasion we do have rides and events that we organize or sponsor which men can participate in like PPS Prom, the Love Your Bike Party, and 5 Dip Challenge, so come on out and ride with us then!
