I am not a brave person. I ride the Washington Ave. Extension, but that’s because I follow the rules of the road and am comforted by the hope that drivers do as well. Maybe it is more correct to say that I don’t take unnecessary risks.
What brought me to this though was a timely article that I read from the London Cyclists about saddles and being comfortable. Today was my first day riding with my brooks, as mentioned in the article, and under my shorts I sport my cycling shorts in all of their padded glory. You see, with a leather saddle there is a “breaking in” period in which the leather is hard as a rock. After losing 130 lbs. and quite a bit of cushioning down there my bones are left baron and therefore the shorts in all of their padded glory.
I’ll probably come out with an article in a month of how the breaking in process is going, but for now I’ll keep my shorts snug and my bike upright.
What do you sit on?
