I love my adamo road saddle.  Hurts the sit bones for a few rides but no massacre in the lady garden dept.

I don't have the massacre problem, just the sore bone bit....

I need to HTFU!! More rides will see to that. My friend has an 80 mile ride planned for us in May, hopefully I'll have HdTFU by then

Boinged again, hopefully some positive stuff in it for all of use who are suffering with the long mileage at the moment

surviving so far thankfully  - must have HTFU. was laughing at my friend the other week as we rented bikes for an afternoon and she was still complaining the next day - the saddles on the bikes were pure luxury in comparison.

from doing long miles in cycling shorts I have now changed to tri shorts and have hardened up..........recovering a lot quicker now and have stuck with the hard mans saddle as no spare cash for a girlie one.........

i actually find tri shorts better than cycling shorts, but that could just be me..

Nope, with you on that one WW.  Much better in tri shorts!

Yes. Less is more.

that was a well timed boing for me all right. I've been fretting over what I'm going to wear for a 1/2IM in June and wondering how I can manage getting into proper cycling shorts after the swim as I've been sh!t scared of doing long cycles with anything less than fully padded shorts!

Having read this thread this morning, I had a word with myself, (the word was TTFU) and went out for a four hour cycle/half hour run brick in a pair of tri shorts. I can report that the ladygarden is in no better or worse state than it would be had I done it in padded cycle shorts. What a revelation! 

I've always fought against TTFU in that department, but apparently, it's already quite T  I can't help feeling in some ways that's a bad thing...<muses>

My God, my bits hurt.....

Nobody told me it'd be like this. Now where did I put that icepack?

Great thread!

One thing I found that helps relieve the tenderness (if it has not been possible to prevent the massacre) is to put my underwear in a zip-lock bag and chuck 'em in the freezer before I go out for my ride. On returning home and having a bath, I am able to put on a nicely chilled pair of knickers.

Aaaaaahhhh, bliss!
