Change your shorts often, make sure you're completely dry down there before dressing. Consider Lomotrin or Tinactin. The bike ride is exacerbating it, sweat feeds it, chafing and rubbing then really make it hurt. Get rid of the fungus and any sweat/chafing will become an irritation instead of an inflammation.
Treat your feet the same way. Get rid of the fungus. Dryness will kill Tinea, it must have moisture.
