Hmm, which seat bone do you think I put more weight on? Photo by Abby Powell.

I have a single pair of riding tights with silicone grips in my riding wardrobe (I love everything about them, by the way, except I’m discovering that I’m just not really a silicone full seat person) and a little while ago I started noticing little silicone remnants left of the seat of my saddle after each ride. I didn’t think too much of it, as it wasn’t damaging my saddle at all of anything, but yesterday I looked at the bottom of my breeches after taking them out of the wash and lo and behold: the most telling sign of my own riding asymmetry that I could have ever asked for. No wonder my trainer keeps having to remind me in lessons to use less @$$!
