A Treat for Me

Monday, January 07, 2013

I don't have as much padding on my fanny as I used to. Or my bicycle seat has gotten harder. I still have plenty of padding on my hips [that won't seem to go away], but it is in the form of 'saddle bags.'

So I treated myself to a padded seat cover for my bike. Sounds way too exotic, but it is a real treat. And since I plan to take longer rides this year, it will be an incentive.

Much better treat than a bag of cookies.

    I have a bigger seat than normal which is very comfortable when we ride. I think it is a good investment, it certainly helps you ride more when you aren't in pain from the seat! emoticon

    Padded seats, eh? Maybe I should check that out? I have a stationery bike that was abandoned in the neighborhood and I don't mind riding it except for the seat. I've often thought I needed something wider, like a John Deere (r)(tm) tractor seat!!

    Hey, now that you spent money on a bike seat, you really must use the bike a lot to justify the purchase. Right? Right!

    I had to get a padded seat too. The unpadded one made riding quite uncomfortable. emoticon emoticon
