Saddle Sores- What Are They? How to Prevent Them? How to Treat Them?

by | Sep 1, 2021 | Podcast

What are  saddle sores?  I’m not talking about a horse in the saddle, I’m talking about an injury or a concern that some cyclists get. The seat of a bike is called a saddle. 

If you ride for a long period of time, you have an intimate relationship with the saddle and what’s between your legs. 

Oftentimes people get what’s called saddle sores, little bumps, they can be the size of a pimple. They can progress to a massive abscess.

I personally can attest to the fact that these are one of the most frustrating and uncomfortable ailments that you can get as a cyclist or a  triathlete.
