    I take stairs one at a time, both ascending and descending, with one hand on a handrail, if available, at all times. Basic safety protocol at plant sites. It gets ingrained after a while.

    I don't even know what that means. I'm just happy that anatomic saddles allow me to ride again. To me, a Brooks is an a** hatchet, a source of misery.
