  • Buy some bicycle shorts that have the cushioned butt pad. I was amazed at the difference they make. They fit snuggly so you might not be comfortable wearing them alone. I just wore mine under other athletic shorts or sweatpants.

  • Go to walmart and look for this gel seat pad. Its this pad that is filled with gel and you fit it over your bicycle seat and its really soft and it doesn't make your but hurt anymore!

  • i brought the gel seat also, it may also hurt for a while but your bottom just has to get used to the whole bottom thing. the more you ride the easier it will get.
