Bicycle saddles, or bike seats should be comfortable enough for you to enjoy a ride.
If it weren’t comfortable, would you still ride on it?
Residents of Western Equatoria, in South Sudan, love bicycles. Actually, I do not know if they love bicycles. I am sure though, those who own and ride one are glad to have one.
In Western Equatoria, a lot of people live far from city centers.
And if you do not have a bicycle, you have to walk to a city center.
Incase you ever needed anything in the city center, without a bike, a walk is usually 20-minutes or more, which doesn’t seem like much of a challenge.
But think of their nutrition and health first.
So, those who have bicycles are glad they have one, it makes commuting easy, and they do not have to walk for 20 minutes, 20 miles or even more.
Maybe you don’t need to go to city center for an errand, you may still need to go there for medical treatment.
Imagine riding on this bicycle saddle for 20 miles, or more, while you have symptoms of Malaria, or typhoid.
Imagine carrying someone who is sick, or a pregnant woman, or a woman who has gone into labor. How could you be careful while riding on this bike saddle?
I am just sharing with you some very tired, and old saddles. But thanks for browsing.
… And think of the sick women, and children, maybe a primary health care facility that is closer to the population, would be better, and it would help the sick.
