    It finally happened!!!

    After riding thousands of miles over 6 years I finally got my first saddle sore. I put on a pair of bike shorts Sunday that I swore I'd never use again and I'm sure they are the culprit. I really think mine situation is more related to stitching in the shorts versus anything bacterial. It surfaced about 2 hours into my ride and felt like I had a thorn sticking through the spandex.

    Pictures available upon request!!!!!

    That pair of shorts is being donated!

    No thanks on the shorts, you best keep them!

    When things get hot & more humid, I use a cream - that seems to help a lot for me.

    My wife thinks I'm too fussy about shorts. When I buy a pair if they give me any discomfort at all, they're gone ASAP. Sorry to hear of your mis-fortune and hope you get quick relief. If it were me, I'd probably use the offending shorts to clean the oil off my car's dip stick and then trash 'em.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    What does a saddle sore look like exactly?
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.
