I’ve started taking the train into work and cycling 20 miles home, so have ended up riding in normal work clothes. This was fine apart from my underpants, they are either a bit too loose or the seams are uncomfortable. Not sure I want to wear lyrca all day as underpants, I have the option to change into them after work I know. But I was just curious if there are any bike-suitable ‘standard’ underpants. These Icebreaker boxers seem good but, at £30 a go, I suppose they should be. Anything more economical out there?
I bought a pr of those icebreaker boxers (think mine are the summer weight ones). They went baggy pretty quick, so don’t hold your tackle and started getting holes in them, not long after I bought them.
Sometimes I forget my riding home lycra and so ride home in my undies with baggies on top (15 miles). It feels so wrong but, I generally wear cotton boxers with short legs and I never get any rubbing from them.

It worries me the number of grown ups who can remember clearly what wearing nappies was like
At my age, the years are ticking by until I need them again… 🙁
I often wonder if the extra padding on cycle shorts spread your hips slightly in the saddle and contributes to the discomfort for recreational cyclists who have a bit more natural padding in their nether regions than the racing pro whippets.
I’ve just rediscovered sprung saddles – pure bliss. 100 mile day and no discomfort.
