I don’t believe the good lord intended for my 67-year old ass to ride on a narrow mountain bike seat for any extended period of time. If such were His intentions, He would have made my ass smaller or the seat bigger.
As we all know, the road to Hell is paved with good intentions and I intend to live a healthier lifestyle by riding my bike for any errand within a 3-mile radius of my home. Today was the first day of the rest of my life (do you like my aphorisms?) with a 3-mile ride to return library books and pick up a few audio books for my car trip next week. Mission accomplished in 40 minutes, including 10 minutes to choose my audio books.
Pros: feel good & energetic, proud of myself, felt safe & secure on my smaller bike, no accidents
Cons: my ass bones hurt. I didn’t know there were bones in your ass. Temporarily solved the problem by alternating butt cheeks on the saddle.
So, there is definitely a larger, cushier bike seat in my future as I continue to peddle my ass around town.
