Does your bike seat give you a pain in the... ?
It may not be the seat, but the way you are sitting on it.
Yes my friends, there is a right way (comfy) and wrong way (painful) to sit on a bike seat.
In today's video I show you 3 ways you can make your bike seat more comfortable
I show you exactly how to tilt your hips to put pressure where it is supposed to be and to relieve pressure in your sensitive areas.
I also talk about options for cushy seat covers and saddle width to support your weight.
In the video I mention 2 previous episodes that take a deep dive into BIKE SET UP - Episode 9 https://youtu.be/etsnAlOLrIA
and Episode 10, Bike Comfort tips https://youtu.be/FOuowPGYNVA
and... I mention the gel seat covers that can give you a little extra cush for your tush. Here is one of my favorite brands from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ETB3TH6/ref=as_sl_pc_as_ss_li_til?tag=healthykneesc-20&linkCode=w00&linkId=4b294d4b86a00be3ad218fddf147fce4&creativeASIN=B01ETB3TH6&th=1
