today i did my first 50 mile ride and did it without my chamois. felt great. i bought a nice saddle
a month ago that is designed for women. on shorter rides - 20 or 30 miles, i've ridden with the
chamois (i have 2 pair of lined shorts) and the ride was more uncomfortable than the 50 miles
without the lined shorts.
so is the point of the lined shorts so you don't get saddle sores long-term?
after 50 miles without the padding i felt fine in the saddle, more connected to bike and overall, i
felt better about the ride.
trying to work out the kinks before my first century. maybe this is all a matter of personal
preference. i'd appreciate some feedback.
