happening in the activity, sport, and business of cycling on the
communities most affected by them. Host Tara Seplavy brings over 25
years expertise in bikes as an athlete, leading product development

pbw put real faces and voices to these topics to connect in a real and meaningful way. It is important to make space and provide a platform to riders from all different parts of the cycling landscape. Our podcasts are a no drop ride. Everyone on our panel brings an important voice and their contribution is valued. The discussions we have are fact based, informative, and centered on the community’s lived experiences. While some discussions might be difficult to have, we want to have them with good faith and sincerity.

Recorded on Trans Day of Visibility, we talk about why visibility is important, some realities of being a trans athletes in the US and globally, and the ongoing legislation in the US and how it affects those in the racing community.
