You have a set amount of space in your work bag for your computer/tablet, gym clothes, and other various necessities. Should you make room for a portable, pretty bike seat cover in there, too? If you share a bike seat —whether through San Francisco's Bay Area Bike Share program or in an indoor cycling class— CitySeat founder Chelsea Petrozzo thinks you owe it yourself to bring your own cover.
CitySeat covers, $35 each, can serve several purposes. First, they make a colorful replacement for that plastic bag-on-the-bike-seat business that you have to deal with in the rain as of late. Second, they fit over both those bike share seats and some stationary bike saddles. If you get grossed out thinking about sitting on the same sweaty seat as a complete stranger, then it may be time to find room in your bag.
