The other day I walked past another bike seat covered with a plastic bag, and I thought, "there has got to be a better way!" In some ways, the plastic bag is a great solution to a sopping wet bike seat - it's free, and it reuses an item that would otherwise be in a landfill. There are downsides, though - they tear easily, and the dangling plastic is constantly getting caught on things. I tried to maintain the spirit and advantages of the plastic bag bike seat cover by using...plastic bags. This project is still free, and still recycles. It adds strength and a clean look, and will keep your bike seat dry for a long time.
