Ow! My butt!

I rode straight for around 2 hours today in the saddle that came stock with my Marin Belvedere. If I wasn't wearing my new lightly padded bib shorts, I'm sure I'd be bleeding right now! ;)

Thanks for all the clothing suggestions and such. In the end I decided to go for a pair of bib shorts, and based on some words from here, went 2XL rather than my regular XL. I'm glad I did both. ...
