A few weeks ago, after our horrible, ridiculously long wonderfully pleasant first ride, I purchased some cute, baggy padded bike shorts because my ass was killing me they are so stylish. I had not had the chance to try them out yet and it was beautiful out, so The Husband and I went for a bike ride today around the neighborhood (about 3 1/2 miles or so).
Oh. My. Lord! What an amazing difference they made. I can sit down without any pain or discomfort! What a novel idea! Hell - I'm still wearing the shorts! I may wear them everywhere from now on!
