We went to the bike shop the other day after work to try out saddles. As we are travelling at least four hours per day it`ll be important to have a decent saddle, otherwise we`re going to be reaching for the seat cream far too often. We also heard that having a good pair of biking shorts is important, they have less seams than normal pants, which cause less rubbing on your skin. We also found a pair, which has a cushion on the backside that should make it a bit more comfortable. We`re still going to buy an extra tube of bum cream just in case!
