ordinary shorts with briefs. If they dangle, they'll tangle.

Mine never got tangled.

Did you mean the shorts, or . . . ?

Target sells "Cycling briefs". Basically briefs without all the seams or a hole for the boy to peek out of :-)

If you're wearing cycling shorts (padded) you don't need and want underwear.
If you're wearing street shorts wear cycling underwear, like these.

Regular underwear is for non-cycling activities.
