Soreness from saddle - How much is normal? Where?
I am a new rider and just made my first 20 miler today. While I was riding I was not particularly uncomfortable, but when I got off the bike I could hardly lift my legs due to soreness on my butt. there is no chafing, just muscle/tissue soreness around my sitbones. I understand I need to toughen up, but I could hardly climb a short flight of stairs from my garage when I got home. Just trying to get an idea of what's normal. I'm 57, about 200 lbs and ride a Giant Roam 1 with a stock saddle.
It is better this evening and I plan to ride some trails tomorrow afternoon with my wife - butt permitting of course.
Thanks in advance,
