Trying to figure out what I need to step up the distance a little further.
I've done a number of 200km brevets and a single 300, and I'm looking to step up to a 400 and hopefully a 600 this year. The trouble is, during the 300 I had an issue I'd never had before and I'm trying to figure what changed.
The problem was that towards the end of it (probably the last 50km or so) the pad in my shorts felt like it was sticking to me and rubbing, to the extent I felt quite sore. I think the problem was a combination of rain and sweat (I'd never done a longer brevet in the rain, and for a time I put a waterproof on which made me much too hot), but I'm thinking if I'm going to attempt longer rides I'm going to have to figure out how to fix it.
Do people put something on the pads in their shorts to stop this kind of thing happening, or do I need something more fundamental?
