My worst saddle soreness experience was the mistake of riding a 10 hour enduro a couple of days post Brazilian wax. Biiiiiig mistake. That’s when I found out that Assos stings if you’re already tender.
Steady, you’ll have SFB stalking (in more than one sense) if you’re not too careful 😆Posted 8 years agocorrodedMember
I’ve used Assos MAL for doing Etapes in the past and it worked (I’ve always assumed Sudocreme to be more of a treatment than a preventative). But I’d say a greater factor was the quality of shorts (Assos again, no question – don’t think they do a women-specific version, if such things make a difference), the saddle and the riding position.Posted 8 years agochompMember
I’d also give the thumbs up for Bepanthen for post ride soothing
I’ve always got some (and sudocream for that matter) in the car as we’ve two under 3’s. I have one of the little pots of sudo in my bag incase there’s any sign of mid ride chaffing going on (which gets topped up from the massive pots we have around the house with the nappies )Posted 8 years ago
Jeremy, sometimes it’s just a case of having pressure in a place that is not accustomed to it for an extended period of time rather than anything wrong with seat/shorts/position. Say you went from being a weekend only rider to doing a 10 hour race, your botty bits would just not be prepared. Well that’s my theory anyway! 🙂
Cinnamon Girl, the boys talk about their vasectomies etc with impunity and absence of letching from us hot blooded females, it’s about time we fought back! 🙂Posted 8 years agomavistoMember
If you can get hold of it, try Bag Balm. It’s original use is for cows udders, but it is well thought of in the American Cycling community and a doctor actually recommended it to me. And yes that was a human doctor and not an animal one.
Google bag balm and cycling and see what results you get.Posted 8 years agobobloMember

‘Tis true. You can build tolerance to this. Mrs B went from zero (non cyclist) to 100 mile per day rear gunner in 3 months. She needed time to build cycling muscles and the ability to sit on bike for hours one end.
S’not just girlies though, boys need to build bum tolerance too…Posted 8 years ago
