    Ladies - I want your cycling shorts.

    Not me really, but SWMBO. She's tootling around on her new(ish) trike but is feeling uncomfortable in certain areas. Saddle is not a problem, it's the rubbing of undergarments and shorts causing chafing in areas that I'm not allowed to look at. So what do you ladies wear? Some sort of decent...

    Shorts for touring

    Like a great many people, my plans for a short tour (my first) in France and Belgium were thwarted by Covid 19. While disappointing personally, I'm acutely aware that this was a trivial outcome in the grand scheme of things. Anyway, I've started thinking about doing a slightly longer tour next...

    Are bib shorts really more comfortable than normal shorts?

    I have only ever had normal shorts and I was wondering whether it would be worth investing in good quality bib shorts or is there not much of a difference between bib shorts and normal shorts?

    Entry level cycle shorts

    Hi I am starting to do longing rides. About 30 miles over a couple of hours. I cycle in building shorts, so no padding exists. Therefore I think some cycling shorts would do me good. I am not looking to break the bank and the top of my budget would be £50. Any recommendations appreciated...

    Childs bike seat or padded shorts?

    My daughter has a scott junior mountain bike. We've done a couple of easy rides now but she says it hurts her bum. Like us all we just get used to it and maybe add some padded shorts and upgrade the seat. I've not looked for stuff yet but was wondering what other parents have done for there...
