I think a lot of beginner cyclists possibly learn the “chamois cream” lesson the hard way!
Believe me a good pair of padded shorts are a necessary best friend on a long bike ride or if you are cycling regularly…
…but your BFF (Best Friend Forever) is a lovely tub of chamois cream.
Learning how to use clipless pedals often involves falling off a few times. You only need to learn the importance of chamois cream by forgetting to apply and heading out on a long ride on the saddle.
By forgetting to butter yourself up before a long bike ride, the lesson is QUICKLY learnt!
To stay comfortable and protect your bits, be able to cycle faster, further, a good chamois cream that agrees with you is CRUCIAL.
Unless ‘saddle sore’ ‘chafing’ ‘friction’ ‘irritation’ or even ‘abscess’ sound like fun to you, grab that chamois cream!
I have tried a number of chamois creams but Her’ Chamois Butt’r is my favourite. It is PH balanced for women and in their own words is “a non-greasy skin lubricant developed by cyclists for use with all chamois. It immediately improves riding comfort and soothes already chafed or irritated skin.”
I concur! I have been cycling longer and longer distances since training for Ride London 100. Her’ Chamois Butt’r is an essential part of my kit bag.
