Before I started cycling, I never thought about the name “pedal pusher” for pants in a literal way. But now it comes to me – duh, this style is named pedal pushers because they are made for pushing pedals! The cuffs are short enough that there is no risk the getting caught in the chain or crank while bicycling.
Since I started bicycling daily, I almost entirely stopped wearing pants in favor of skirts and dresses to avoid having to secure pants cuffs, but lately I’ve been wanting to wear outfits built around pants. Pedal pushers are a good solution.
This is the only pair of pedal pushers I have, tending to avoid them as not the most flattering length, but I think I’ll keep my eyes out for more. They are just too convenient and fun for bicycling. I really don’t know why I never thought of them much before. :-)
What do you think – are you a fan of pedal pushers?
