If your bike seat is uncomfortable, you might want to shop for a new one. There is nothing worse than taking the road bike out on a long trip only to suffer a sore bum for the next few days. Comfort is a common issue, especially among newer cyclists. Here are a few tips.
Make sure that your seat isn't mounted too high. A seat that is too high can cause irritation on sensitive parts of your lower anatomy. Seek some fitting advice if this is the case.
Road bike saddles are adjustable, meaning you can set them to tilt forward or tilt back. Even the slightest change of tilt might be enough to relieve pressure.
Lastly, riding over a long period of time requires you to stand up on your bike occasionally, giving your rear end some much-needed relief. So if you have recently purchased a road bike seat, the problem with discomfort might be you need a little fine-tuning in your adjustments.
