Keeping your 'Little Chap' Warm

So, when the temp drop to below zero I find it can be a little painful 'downstairs' even though I am wearing padded Roubaix tights, just wondering what others on here do to stay comfortable?

I see 2 options...
1. wear padded shorts and then a pair of un-padded thermal tights over the top
or
2. wear a sock over the little guy to help keep him warm... in fact, that's what I'm going to do on Friday!

Thanks

  • It's been option one for me and my todger has been just fine ;)
  • Not something I've really suffered with. Besides, my socks are too big.

    Wrap him in tin foil.

    I usually tuck him into one of socks I'm wearing at the time.

    I guess warmer bibs is the only real solution. Anything else would just be uncomfortable.

    You could always try the old deep heat, but i imagine you would spend the ride screaming from the pain! :lol:

    If you're tucking him into a sock you're wearing, always tuck him into your left sock...avoids the risk of it getting caught in your chainset :D

    I use one of these. :lol:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Slather him in Deep Heat before you set off.

    Live with it and negotiate a rejuvenating massage when you get home.

    Not all roubaix tights are equal. The castelli stuff tends to be a little thinner than the DHB stuff I find.

    Maybe just cycle faster?
