    Your behind needs to toughen up as said, however do make sure the saddle is level to start with.
    A pair of padded shorts or undies might help too

    Ride at the pace at which you feel comfortable

    Gloves are a must so you dont shred your hands if you come off. The first bit that hits the ground and full of nerve endings!!

    +1. The worst saddle I ever rode on had a lot of squishy padding and a cutout. I was in agony within 2 miles!
