Don't get chapped, get Canari Cycle Liners.
on June 30, 2009
A secret known by pro cyclists for years is that wearing two pairs of cycling shorts is a good way to add protection against saddle sores and chafing.
The Canari Gel Padded Cycle Liner may be intended to be worn under regular shorts to make them usable for cycling, but an even better use for them is to wear them inside padded cycling shorts for added padding. Chamois cream is applied to the Cycle Liner instead of to your cycling shorts and the net result is a much more comfortable ride. And, No, you can't feel the extra padding thickness. It feels no different than wearing just padded shorts by themselves.
I just completed the Bicycle Ride Across Nebraska which was seven straight days in the saddle averaging 65 to 70 hard miles each day, some of which was over some pretty choppy road surfaces. I wore quality cycling shorts with Canari Gel Cycle Liners under them every day and had zero hot spots or saddle sores. I could have ridden another seven days with no problem. (NOTE: Keep in mind that cleanliness is vitally important and don't wear shorts or cycle liners twice without laundering them.)
Try Canari Gel Padded Cycle Liners under your padded cycling shorts on your next century or charity ride and you'll be amazed at the comfort.
