Tell us about yourself!
I improvised reins like this on a bike trail once. I used to ride all the time upright, no hands, but now it feels unstable ( maybe narrower, high pressure tyres ? ) I wanted to give my wrists a rest, so just unzipped the removable arms from my jacket and tied them to the bar ends. The sleeves are a thin, non stretch hi-vis material, connected across the shoulders. They worked perfectly.
