If you thought your last cycle ride was tough, just think what it would have been like if you had done it without a saddle. Scottish rider Carlos Riise (Shetland Wheelers) flew down from the Shetlands to ride the Scottish Vet 50. But, in flying 250 miles south he left his saddle back in the Shetland islands, rather than miss the race he just decided to the race without a saddle! He still completed 50 miles in 2.04.00!
I don’t think I would even have done a 10 mile TT without a saddle, let alone 50. The guys in the Shetland Islands must be that little bit tougher than the rest of us.
