Should I wear underpants under cycling shorts?
Rule #1 – you do NOT wear your underwear under cycling shorts. Having a pair of cotton underwear inside your cycling shorts negates all of the benefits provided (friction control, moisture management). If you have bib shorts or bib knickers, your cycling jersey goes OVER the bib straps, not under.
Why do cyclists eat bananas?
Bananas are the number one cycling food. They are perfectly balanced to replace the electrolytes lost through sweat, particularly potassium as well as providing 25g-30g of carbohydrate to supply energy to our cycling muscles.
Do you wear shorts over padded bike shorts?
The padded bike shorts do too, but the padding covers the seams, which, along with the tightness of the shorts, prevents chafing. You don’t want to chafe down there. If you want to wear something over the shorts, that’s perfectly fine.
How do I stop my bum from hurting when cycling?

Are cycling shorts worth it?
