    why not get some cycling undercrackers to wear under your jeans, if you're not keen on lycra tights and shorts?

    like these

    A pair of cheap walking style troos (with padded shorts under) could be good for you. Light, quick drying fabric and some have articulated knees ie. the fabric is sewn so it's already part bent at the knee - I find these good for when I want to wear a pair of strides on the bike. Millets and Decathlon are good for these (1 pair for about 12quid from Decathlon at the w/e).

    Sorry to contradict you Alec, but I would avoid that particular pair of smegs. I bought those and had to return them when the chamy bunched up, over the counter inspection an all, very embarrasing:blush:.

    I have since bought some of oakley's padded undergarments which seem much better and up to the tough job intended they are thouroghly recomended :blush::biggrin:

    Halfrauds also sell the 'dirt monkey' range, primarily intended for ATB use, but they too have a padded insert and are reasonably priced.

    Craghopper / Rohan (or similar) walking/leisure longs that convert to shorts. Wear padded boxers for riding comfort. Good compromise - comfort, shorts, longs, quick drying, light weight, dont scream cyclist when off bike.
