Ladies you have been forewarned. This is not a female topic.
I warned them.
Okay this past summer as I was riding, long rides(100+ milers) I started having a problem. First I will admit I was wear cutoff blue jeans at the time, not cycling shorts. The problem was very simple. I kept getting rubbed(shall I say) the wrong way...and definitely in the wrong place. I kept getting rubbed right on the ring of the peanus, aka the widest part of the peanus just before it starts to funnel down to the point. It would get nice and sore for a couple of days and even turn red in color after doing a long ride. I didn't have any kind of problems on shorter rides. I had no chaffing of any kind or anything else. I just kept getting rubbed raw on the body side of the peanus.
Finally in August I bought a pair of cycling short and I figured the problem was over. It was...for 1.5 months or so and then it came right back, even while wearing cycling shorts.
After it had happened on the first couple of rides this spring I got to thinking on one of the rides about needing some kind of protection. The crazy thought of a condom came to mind. Then the crazy thought of just using saran wrap to wrap the peanus before the ride came to mind. I tried it out before the next long ride I did, a 207.8 miler. It worked great. Didn't have any trouble at all. Normally even now I can eliminate the possibly of the problem coming up by wrapping the peanus with saran wrap. The problem though is getting the saran wrap to always want to stay on. Last week on a 100+ miler it kept coming off all the time. I hadn't had that problem until last week. Today on the 100 miler I did I was trying out the idea of wearing a full body wetsuit for cold weather protection and even with a much loser clothing fit down there I still ended up getting rubbed raw yet again. I didn't try wrapping it today though.
Has anyone else had the problem and found a way of eliminating it? This has definitely gotten to be a royal pain in the .............
