Flite are v good. I've got a gel flite.

Still a bit sore if I have a few weeks off though. But as Jon. and Ironwolf say - with time you get used to it.

Know what you mean Ironwolf...ouch!!

Trouble is, like you say, it's ok after a while but like me now I haven't been on my bike for a couple of weeks and the pain of the exertion doesn't bother me one bit but the pain down below puts me right off!

Do you think I would look silly if I take my comfort cushion 'leopard skin number from John Lewis which normally resides on my bed' and pop it under my delicate bits for the first few rides?

I might object...might be a relative.

Tee hee JJ!

Hmm, so I am not alone then! I only use my bicycle for going to and from work - 2 very undulating miles each eay - but a few weeks ago went to the doc because I was worried that something bad was going on down below. After examining me, the first thing she asked was if I ride a bicycle. Then she told me not to wear any pants when I'm at home. And now I'm fine.

I sympathise for you proper cyclists!!

Oh yeah - and ladies - especially no thongs in my spin classes or when you are out on the bike. Just lycra shorts and it should be much more comfy.

I haven't yet conducted a thong inspection in class - but the threat is there !

Commando at home?

( rapidly thums directory to book into Cougie's spinning class)

This should be good!

Absolutely Barkles. Twas a little bit strange at first. Oh yes, the doc also banned thongs.

Don't look at the piccy on the front page of the Star then. Thong or dental floss ?

Created quite a debate in the office today.

...not that I would ever wear a thong - so uncomfortable!

It's a huge fashion conspiracy - if they started to make clothing out of decent fabrics again, then people wouldn't need to worry about the dreaded VPL, so they wouldn't need/want to wear thongs. Ugh!!!

Sorry, back to the cycling then...

concentrate on what Barkles - finding that kid's tooth? :)
07/10/2003 at 14:32
tee hee....

actually am invigilating at the mo, so not allowed to do anything of substance..

ah, I see, well, better not suddenly laugh out then?!

I need to write my Norwegian essay, and then have productive thoughts about Luce Irigaray. And then write them into my thesis intro. Make of that what you will!
