In 2018, Izzy Sederbaum was out biking with a friend in Washington State when they were attacked by a cougar. Recovering from the incident was a challenge, and as a trans man, Izzy received a ton of online abuse, along with misunderstanding and speculation. All this hatred has pushed Izzy in a direction motivated by love. Today he’s working to make cycling more inclusive for people with marginalized identities.
