I got myself a new bike! I know, right? How exciting! Please humor me here. It's been forever since I've had a working bike of my own, that I feared I'd have forgotten how to ride one. Well lucky thing is, just as "they" say (who ever "they" are), you really don't ever forget. What I did notice though is how different it feels in the beginning, to what I remember it felt like as a teenager (yes, I'm still talking about bike riding here). Here's my new baby...
However, the feeling that I do remember from my youth, is the totally uncomfortable and painful way my butt felt while sitting on that small slip of a bike seat. Who designs these things anyway? I doubt if I need to say this because you most likely already know, but my butt is decidedly bigger than it was back in my teenage years (go figure). So how in the world can I possibly ride comfortably on this teeny tiny seat now? It just 'aint happening.
Enter our dear friends Pam and John to my rescue. Out of the goodness of their hearts (and their concern for my posterior end) they're loaning me a bigger, wider, softer bike seat to use, for my bigger, softer, wider back end. What a difference a few inches makes, and contrary to popular belief when it comes to bike seats...size does matter.
The end! :)
