Bruised Ass Bone!

I'd been injury free all winter until this morning. On the commute the trails and roads have been getting nice and icy, so today I decided to kick things up a notch and move faster than snow speed. So I'm cruising along when I run into a patch of impacted ridges of ice running across the road in front of me. I must have hit them just wrong, because since then my ass bone has been killing me. I can't ride for the moment. I didn't know a person could injure their ass bone.

Is there a better saddle I should be using? I've been riding with the standard Electra cruiser saddle, which is big and wide with a little spring in it.

I'm going to go soak my ass in the mean time.

Bruising the tail bone is never fun and it can take a while to heal since you sit down on it all the time. One of the anatomical seats might help to reduce discomfort. And also heal faster since it will take pressure off from your tailbone. All my bikes have them. They improve cycling comfort a lot in general. Even when you don't have a sore ass.
