At one point in the story it mentions that the rider must be 'astride' the seat.
Ride while not astride seat: $109
The definition of astride is on or over and a leg on each side of. It is not defined as butt attached to seat.
When I pedal my butt is over the seat and I have a leg on each side of the seat. Maybe the law is to prevent riders form sitting on the handlebars, etc.
With a leg on each side: riding astride.
With the legs wide apart.
On or over and with a leg on each side of.
Situated on both sides of.
Lying across or over; spanning.
