CREAM OF THE CROP
Looking after your rear isn’t just about buying the most technologicallyadvanced shorts
It’s important to always wash your bib shorts after every ride, and avoid putting dirty shorts back on, to reduce the chance of bacterial infections. Using a chamois cream will transform your time in the saddle. It’s easily applied directly to the skin or on the inner pad to provide a lubricant that helps to avoid chafing or sores caused by sweating. Be aware that some have a slight warming effect, so don’t be alarmed. A tub of chamois cream is possibly the best £10 you can spend on your cycling.
