Avoiding bike-saddle soreness begins with choosing and adjusting the right bike. When you go shopping for a bike, take it for test ride to make sure it feels right when you are on it. If you already have a bike, then you need to make sure to adjust the bike correctly for your physical dimensions. If the seat position is too high, it can create downward pressure as you ride. If it is too low, you will ride too loosely on the bike and have problems with saddle soreness. Take the bike to your local cycle shop if you are unsure exactly what adjustments you need to make.
