I bore with it for about a month, thinking I would get used to it, but that never happened.
So I removed my 20 year old leather saddle from another bike and put it on my new one.
So two days ago, I took the opportunity of this wonderfully cool weather to take a ride to the city, on my new old saddle, to have my first look at the new waterfront development called Elizabeth Quay, due to be opened in a week or two.
You can view a map of my ride by clicking the link in the right hand column.
On reaching it, I found that it was still fenced off, still a construction site and this was the closest I could get to it.
Previously, that patch of land was public open space. Now there will be more tall buildings, restaurants and cafes. A change for the better? I wonder.
I aimed my iPhone around and took these 2 shots around me.
And the flag tells me I will have a headwind on the way home.
A view of South Perth before I leave.
(Incidentally, in Strava site which details my rides, my account is under one of my many 'net pseudonyms - Nat Hopnoo. Those who have known me for a very long time may like to hazard a guess as to why I chose that name.)
