This is why we need a female only forum! I have not braved a long distance cycle ride yet and have only been building myself up by doing more casual Sunday rides. So is the general consensus that padded shorts are the best option? I have heard plenty of horror stories about blistering.

Has anyone here invested in casual cycle wear? I'm not sure how bigger thing this yet but know a few friends who have invested and have been very tempted myself. I guess it appeals to me because as i'm currently doing my cycling on Sundays with my partner and sometimes friends it would be nice to wear something practical, comfortable and god forbid a little bit stylish??? Does anyone here wear casual cycle wear... help haha
