Dear all, doing the london to brighton in 2 weeks time. I have a serious question, I will have shorts on with a chamois pad, but do I need tro wear anything underneath apart from drapolene for the chaffing. I know you buggers will wind me up but serious advice will be appreciated.

    go combat with some proper lycra cycling shorts under some baggies.

    Absolutely not, use your padded shorts as underwear. Imagine wearing your grots underneath! AAAARRRGGHHH!!! :shock:

    Also, cleanliness is next to godliness!! :wink:

    As said above use the padded shorts as underwear,they are seamless so they wont rub like normal underwear does. I always wear baggy shorts over the lycra though as my legs are not up to it,I'm often asked the question ' What are those 2 bits of string hanging from your shorts? ' :oops:
  • Hi, thanks for the advice.
    I was going to wear my lycra/spandex cycling shorts with a pair of baggies over the top. Nice one fellas.
  • Actually I have a pair of altura padded undershorts in my drawer, so they should do the job under my baggies. The baggies also have a padded insert. Does that sound Ok.
    I can post pics if you want?!!! (sounds perv to me)
