Is there any nice trails where y'all live?
We don't have many trees or hills but there's a pretty nice park they made out of an old query. Pretty flat and mostly dirt and rocks. Pretty sandy too but at least it's something! They maintain it well and add new parts occasionally.
I used a seat like that when I started haha but eventually got used to "less comfortable" seats
Awesome. I wont make any comments on the seat:)
One of the reasons I am where I am is the easy access to some wicked trails all within a half hours ride of the city. We have a Provincial park here with an 80 metre decent that is wonderful to ride any time. Access is free to cyclists so it's the best deal around. A half hour in the other direction is the Bruce Trail which is equally good and goes on quite literally forever.
