Life is a Journey
I have always enjoyed cycling to school and in recent
years, long weekend cycles through the Mourne mountains (N.Ireland)
where I live. It was probably listening to members of my family talk of
the famous Brooks Saddles of times gone by that gave me the curosity to
research the well known brand. I went with my instincts and ordered a
black Champion Flyer for my Claud Butler Classic and I am glad I did.
from the great comfort these saddles provide, it has made me realise
that often the modern products of the disposable world we now live in,
are often not the best choice. With my Brooks saddle I began to enjoy
the journeys more and saw the bicycle less as a mode of transport to
get from A to B. In December past ('07) my Brooks saddle inspired me to
go the whole way and, with money I had saved up I bought a Pashley
Roadster Classic with a nice big B66 saddle which complements the bike
really well. Out for a cycle the the other day, I passed through
Tollymore Park (an old estate where the big house has been knocked down
but many of the traditional eighteenth century gothic follies still
remain) where I took the photo above.
me, Brooks saddles are summed up in that well known saying, 'Life is a
Journey, Not just a destination,' taking the time to enjoy cycling and
admiring the landscape as you pass it by is a great thing to do, and I
thank You that the high quality saddles you make allow so many people
to do just that.
