I have a questions for you female riders:
Here's the background. Michele (my 17 year old daughter) recently got interested in cycling for fitness. She is not at the point where she is totally hooked on cycling (yet) so I'm trying to make our rides really enjoyable for her. I don't want to do anything to discourage her.
Being a 17 year old, Michele is more concerned with her looks than anyone should be. She thinks that spandex biking shorts are "weird"; so she has been wearing street clothes with standard underwear. Needless to say her but is getting really sore.
I hear that there is cycle specific riding underwear for women. Do any of you wear them? How do they compare to the standard bike shorts? Where do you get them?
She also 'might' wear baggy bike shorts as long as the pad is not too obvious. Do any of you have any suggestions with these?
