Mrs Mainwaring, who is not a big cycling fan, is on the Spring "must get fit and trim" kick, so she's going to start using my old Rockhopper on the local roads. Went out the first time today and came back complaining of a sore backside.
Can you recommend some nicely padded shorts she can wear under walking trousers. We don't want to spend a fortune on all new riding kit in case she really does not get on with it after a few weeks, but I do want to encourage her as much as possible.
While you're about it, could you also suggest a comfy saddle for ladies? She will only be using the bike on roads and fire roads so does not need a proper MTB saddle
