Welcome to the group. I ride with my kids too ages 7 & 9, they listen really well to mommy and stop at every stop sign but I'm still nervous at times when we cross the road. Some drives are so rude.
I know what you mean about the seat, I recently changed my rock hard seat to a comfy padded one that even has springs under the seat to absorb the bumps and it's made for a women, extra padding in the front. It made my rides so much more enjoyable. I have family in Windsor Ontario and when I was in my teens we use to cross the boarder and go shopping, that was so much fun. Happy cycling.
