Anybody ride 50+, centuries, etc. without padded lycra? I have never ridden with padded shorts, don't necessarily care for them, and no desire to wear lycra. Just some things I don't like to share with the general public.
I do ride with wicking under armor draws under some athletic shorts and have a Brooks B17 saddle that I am still breaking in, but plenty comfortable as is. As of now, I only ride ~20-25 miles, but I am looking to take the next step and want to work up to century form. So, how common is it to rode without padding and the like over long distances?
