Being a bit sore from hours in the saddle, or getting saddle sores happens to all cyclists; from Tour de France racers to everyday cyclists.

The (rather uncomfortable) fact is that, there’s probably no avoiding it at some point, but, there are (at least) ten things that you can do to keep pain, irritation and chafing away or down to a minimum.

The thought of pain, irritation and chafing down there should really be enough for you to want to do all ten…

Don’t forget to give this one a SHARE (it is useful after all), and a LIKE.

  14. Orez Alieanesis on August 2, 2019 at 2:31 am

    I have learned so much more about cycling. Thanks for all the info.



  15. Snallis on August 2, 2019 at 2:31 am

    You guys make great videos! They are both informative and funny!



  16. Dria Woods on August 2, 2019 at 2:32 am

    I have to go to work on my bike so I can’t be wearing bike clothing. This doesn’t help



  17. HuSanNiang on August 2, 2019 at 2:33 am

    You think you guys have problems, try to think what women have to cope with. Most saddles are just adapted ones from men´s . There are definitely more painful contact points than men have.



  18. smalltallhall on August 2, 2019 at 2:34 am

    This video is amazing 😂😂😂😂



  19. Haz . Boz on August 2, 2019 at 2:34 am

    This just isn’t funny



  20. Heяø GaMeR on August 2, 2019 at 2:35 am

    Step 1 : sell your road bike
    Step 2 : buy a cruiser bike



  21. ram poonia on August 2, 2019 at 2:35 am

    Please one video in dite



  22. Jordan Meyerowitz on August 2, 2019 at 2:38 am

    Love the video. I’m not a fan of those padded bike short. I use a Komfy bike seat cover over my seat. It’s also washable unlike those gel bike seat covers.



  23. Blinky on August 2, 2019 at 2:38 am

    My back hurts when biking what do i do im a mtber?



  24. NCG on August 2, 2019 at 2:42 am

    Why cant the make a bike seat like a chair? There we go, fixed the ass problem.



  25. Syphe Xeon on August 2, 2019 at 2:42 am

    Is this gay



  26. Thomas Trout on August 2, 2019 at 2:43 am

    I think the last tip is the best: to just spend the time in the saddle and toughen up your buttocks.



  27. plnkfloydian on August 2, 2019 at 2:43 am

    The other day I was riding my bike and my dick fell asleep, am I dying 👀



  28. Bruce W McLaughlin on August 2, 2019 at 2:45 am

    When you guys get older and you are fed up with all the things you hear about curing your pains on your bike , look up recumbents and if you try them you will be asking yourself why it took so long to try something that is far more comfortable and no pains anywhere. Older as in mature enough to buy something different . " I don’t have a problem with peer pressure I just do what my friends do" sound familiar? I should have started much sooner.



  29. Pulkit Sharma on August 2, 2019 at 2:48 am

    Just buy a gel cover for your saddle.



  30. vinohn on August 2, 2019 at 2:50 am

    What about the sweet hole??



  31. Singing PSYCHO on August 2, 2019 at 2:52 am

    I’m 11 and I just learned how to learn a bike but the first time I tried my butt hurt so bad 😅



  32. Gamer Legoninjajones on August 2, 2019 at 2:52 am

    Actually you have 5 contact points on your bike. Butt, hands and feet



  33. Nathaniel Prentice, LCSW, CAS-PC on August 2, 2019 at 2:52 am

    I’m an American and I found your putting the Union Jack in your nether regions reprehensible.

    You should have gone with an American flag.

    These days, we Americans do it every day.



  34. Thomas L.S. on August 2, 2019 at 2:53 am

    $ Overpriced $ and painful plastic seats. Suppose to be to save on weight. So then you have to buy all these fancy cloths and pads for your ass. The padding that should be in your bike seat in the first place. At the end of the day it’s how much they want you to spend so you can take a ride in you neighborhood. It’s all a big. Spend more money Scam !



  35. Joseph Bleasdale on August 2, 2019 at 2:54 am

    “That’s not a wet berm. This is a wet berm…”



  36. Jeff Jones on August 2, 2019 at 2:55 am

    Quit riding those asinine diamond frames and get a proper recumbent. I sit on 4 inches of foam. The ONLY pain I have are tired legs at the end of a century.



  37. Laurie Cloonan on August 2, 2019 at 2:56 am

    You two are hilarious. I’m loving the bungie chord "strap on" cushion.



  38. Kevin C on August 2, 2019 at 2:57 am

    You forgot saddle height. If your saddle is too high your hips will rock back and forth on the saddle creating a lot of friction and discomfort. Your knees should bend slightly when fully extended on the pedals (roughly 15 degrees).



  39. househansa on August 2, 2019 at 2:58 am

    Flat tyre on the Battaglin.



  40. SHEETAL 8 on August 2, 2019 at 2:58 am

    😂😂😂ohh it’s about cycling …..



  41. Marty Fowler on August 2, 2019 at 3:00 am

    Second video Of brits washing dishes and not rinsing the soap, very odd your food must taste like soap.



  42. steemdup on August 2, 2019 at 3:03 am

    undercarriage lmao!



  43. wereis thesushi18 on August 2, 2019 at 3:03 am

  44. Bombed Nevada on August 2, 2019 at 3:04 am

    Oh…this is about cycling.



  45. Ian James Lake on August 2, 2019 at 3:06 am

    Anti bacterial soap.



  46. aapddd on August 2, 2019 at 3:06 am

    Can someone tell me why all bikes have massively uncomfortable saddles ? Weight or movement ? The only thing that works for me is a big ass gel saddle. It looks ridiculous but I have no other option.



  47. AYX AYo on August 2, 2019 at 3:06 am

    And the title had me laughing for years



  48. Klo Pille on August 2, 2019 at 3:07 am

    There are 2 Others contactpoints …your feed



  49. Syd Clark on August 2, 2019 at 3:09 am

    Or……Don’t got to jail (unless your into that sort of thing)



  50. mr hood on August 2, 2019 at 3:10 am
