Saddle up – cover story

Walking up the Portobello this morning it was hard to miss the stall selling the most gorgeous coloured bike seat covers. Made from up-cycled furniture fabric from Denmark, no two are the same and so are named. I bought Roy for my rusty stead. They are splash proof and made up of three layers for a comfy ride and in glorious colours for £25 . There is also the 100% water proof and lightly cushioned model (not as tactile) which comes in at £15. It has to be this year’s Christmas present for all. I want the lot. They look a bit like a flat cap for your bike or a posing pouch for a well-hung man friend, depending on which way you hold them obvs. pedalshed
