Yup!!! I even had a seat that was so so hard that the pain never went away lol. Now I have the correct seat and my bum will only hurt for a few days! Isnt it great that the weather is nicer and warmer now!

I don’t bike, but I do spin classes, and yeah, it takes a few times to build up a tolerance again if I take some time off.

I bike all year round but I still get the soreness when switching from my city bike to my road bike because the road bike’s saddle is much less comfortable… ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh yeah. Usually after the first day I go, I can’t go for another few days because even the thought of having that thing jammed under me is enough to make me sit on the couch and stay chubby. 

I really wish it would warm up a bit here. Any days where it is actually over 40, it is waaaayy too windy to break out the bike.

I don’t bike often, but the spin class I just took definitely left me feeling bruised for a couple of days! Ouch!

Any exercise will hurt the following day if you haven’t done it in awhile.

It hurts so much! I commute to work every day on a road bike (about 20km) but took a break while training from my half marathon. I got back on the bike last week and had completly forgotten about the pain! My bum was literally refusing to sit down on the saddle and I swear I had to have a mind vs. bum argument with my bum yelling ‘don’t do this to me’.

1) Get fitted for a proper saddle.

2) Don’t over do it the first few times of the season.  I think even a 10 mile ride is too much if you’re not used to it.

I regularly take spin class, but when I take off for a few days and go back, my butt is soooooo sore after!

@Creiddylad:  definitely!  Even with padded shorts, those sit bones still get bruised bigtime.

@Creiddylad:  “How I wish I had more time to go biking instead of sitting getting plump at a boring desk doing schoolwork. . . ๐Ÿ˜› Can’t wait for the semester to be OVER!”

Me too!  Can’t wait until school is over with!
