Next weekend I'll be doing the Pan Mass Challenge. Basically two days of back to back centuries. I've been doing a lot of riding and for lack of a better description, my sitting bones are starting to bother me after 80 miles or so. This is a recent developement once I started getting into the high mileage on back to back training days. Mostly it's been an annoyance, but the last few rides it's been getting worse. I'm using a Specialized Avatar saddle that has been very comfortable, until recently that is. It's one of the few saddles I've tried that didn't make me numb.
So my question is this. For a hot summer ride like this, would you consider doubling up on your bike shorts to get the extra padding? I'd be good for the first day, but am thinking of doing this on the second day. I wouldn't want to make any major changes to my bike now as I've been training with this exact setup for over 6 months.
If you wouldn't double up, what would you consider doing other then taking a LOT of advil?
