hi, thought this may be of interest to some of you, fingers crossed I may be able to take part if PF finally responds to treatment, otherwise will be there to watch. ( Can vouch for it being a fast circuit)
Hi Sally, I had this on my road bike and it turned out to be stress to the lateral knee area caused by incorrectly fitted cleats, easily resolved. Just a thought if you're riding your spin classes in clipless shoes as ive noticed this becoming more common.
Hello Tan, all good advice above, I find Campagnolo do very good cycling bottoms that are female specific in the padding. And definitely no knickers, the extra layer will cause chaffing. With regards to creams etc, I was at a sportive last October and Emma Pooley was special guest - she swore by Lanacane anti chafe cream when asked the question!
most importantly, are you set up correctly on your bike? Riding a little too high is a frequent cause of saddle sores for women. i also changed to a Selle Italia diva saddle which made a change initially as was more comfortable, although as more time out riding, it's not been too important as my second bike has a pretty standard Planet X seat on it, and so long as good tights and proper seat height addressed, dont have any problems.
if you're still interested in triathlon, they are running a few events there if youd like to spectate. And the track is open for cycling on Wednesday and Friday evenings from next week onwards. (Family cycling night on mondays)
