Extra padding

I have a bike but I don't do much cycling. Half an hour locally is enough for me, then my bum starts to get sore. I have a gel seat but it isn't soft enough for my delicate lady parts.  I could do with a cushion to sit on. 
I bought a pair of shorts with a seat pad sewn into them, from Aldi. Browsing the central aisle as you do. The label says they are breathable and they regulate body moisture. It feels like I have a nappy between my legs. Very odd. Will I be walking around like I have poo'd my pants. 😁 
I'll give these a try. Haven't tested them yet, but I suspect that even these are not going to help very much. I might have to stitch some extra padding to the inside. A piece of foam would do the job. This test won't be done today though, because it's raining again.
I have just been to the pop up Post Office in the church. They cannot process any transactions because the computer is updating itself. Not very convenient when everything goes over to CBDC. Keep spending cash folks. 
Time for breakfast then sewing. Thanks for popping in.

  1. My bikes, an E-bike and a traditional one have special 'lady's seat' or 'skirt saddle' we call in Dutch 'Rokzadel',
    which means they have not that long front point. Very comfortable for the delicate lady parts. I do bike a lot and often up to 30 kilometres and never have painful parts.


    1. I will have a look in Go Outdoors and see if there are any seats of a better design.

  2. As a one-time cyclist (where we lived at the time very little public transport) I can assure you that the long front point isn't just uncomfortable for women. After a long bike journey men can suffer considerable discomfort as well!

  3. I'm a keen cyclist, although I don't do as much as I used to. My advice is to just stick at it and eventually your body will adjust. You might like

    1. Yes, I think that is the answer. Not to give up so quickly. Maybe a smear of Vaseline would help.


Some comments will be accepted. I decide which are published.
