Went for my first rides this wknd in 5 weeks; moving, working and commuting has been putting a big crimp in my riding.

Did a 33 miler on Friday and another one on Sunday, winter's definitely here, gusts both days at 20 mph, and in the high 40's temps.

Felt great though.

Please you were finally able to get out Perry. I have to say I have no inclination to get out in this cold - I just hate riding in the cold, it plays havoc with my lungs.

It doesn't help I have had a bloody cold for 2 weeks now.

Time to set the rollers up in my poch I think.

I have had a cold too for the last week, that's why I skipped last wknd. I always bundle up though, as I'm always cold on the bike. Wind stopping Craft underwear is your friend........:lol3

It's not the body being cold that I mind - I did ride all day Saturday on the XR starting real early and it was bloody freezing, it's the breathing in of the freezing cold air that I really dislike.

Of course, it could be I'm a wimp.....:D

I love riding in the cold until a certain point. Once my nose feels like the inside is freezing I dislike it. That said the winds were killer on Sat. Only rode into the city (maybe 8 miles) and the wind was making it tough.

That coupled with the fact that my new "friend" is a better rider than I am and I get to chase her. Yeah that is why I was sucking wind and slow:evil Though I so have to say that my view is better:wink:

I can't fill a water bottle in 3:05 minutes.

I got out Saturday and put 23 miles on my fixie in around 2.5 hours. I'm way out of shape, but really didn't feel too bad after that ride. :D

Seeing as bikeforums.net is currently blocked here in China (no idea as to why), I will ask my bicycle health related question here.

On long rides I have a problem with my perineum tearing on long rides, this leads to, rather obviously, pain and blood in my shorts. Yes, I know that they make "special bandages" for that area, I do not need to hear it.

This was one of the reasons that my attempted ride to Shanghai didn't go as well as I had hopped. This weekend I rode about 60mi at a good pace and the problem resurfaced. I have tried seat adjustment and I do wear padded riding shorts. At home I ride my recumbent more, it is slower but it puts the pressure on my but instead of the perineum.


Any suggestions?

What specifically are you riding? What saddle? What shorts?

Chafing's 'normal' but tearing's not. Are there GOOD bike shops in the area that can fit you? First impression sez something's NOT right in saddle-land. :nono

Let me remind you that this is Jo Momma. To that end, let me ask you if you engage in any other activities that might predispose you to tears of the perineum?

I feel like I've said this before.. I wear two pairs of shorts when I ride my diamond frame bicycle.. double up the padding... nothing is more important than the comfort of my toosh.
