Get Ready for Another Cycling Season

So here it is March 2017 and it’s too cold to ride bike without covering every square mm of skin, at least for some of the fair weather riders.  The 2017 ride schedule has now been posted with the first official ride only 3 weeks away, April 1, 2017.  I know time to get ready.

With that I am posting a picture of Jimmy’s bike seat taken last summer when he was out riding with us.  Yes this is the same Mr. Fix-it that tried, to some level of success, to manufacture any repair from sunglasses to shorts to helmets and pedals; then there is his bicycle seat pictured below.

 

And he rode it like that all summer.  Don’t know the whole story but I would not recommend that seat on the next Naked Bike ride event!

Last winter I was looking to replace my bike seat and came across a story in Roadbike Rider regarding a bicycle seat for ‘older’ riders.  The name of the company is Kontact and after reading through the reviews on Roadbike rider and on the web site I ended up purchasing the seat.  I found that it took very little time to break the seat in, was very comfortable and worked well for me all summer.  

Check out the information on the seat here http://www.kontactbike.com/

As we begin to fondle our bikes with the anticipation of warm weather rides it is good to work at getting the bikes ready and dream about the saturday morning rides.

Just a middle-aged man whose blood pressure and cholesterol were out of wack and needed a tuneup, bad. Then I rekindled my love for riding a bike -- just the simple act of turning the cranks. What happened next is I met a lot of neat people who are as nuts as I am. Ride on.
