Well seated

It might be all in the mind, but sitting on a pretty saddle will definitely make cycling for exercise (or pleasure) more fun.

A bicycle saddle is a bicycle saddle is a bicycle saddle. No, say cycling enthusiasts! And “hell no” say appreciators of gorgeous design. And it’s all thanks to leather artist Kara Ginther!

It’s not often that one gets to sit on fine art, but with Ginther’s Brooks saddle designs, this is possible. She uses fine woodcarving and lino tools to create intricate patterns and textures on leather bicycle saddles. Latex paint is used to colour the designs.
