first Spinning class last night...

and wow, does my butt hurt! With the exception of that and my feet slipping out of the cages momentarily, I enjoyed the class and would like to continue. Does anyone have ideas on how I can continue without recurrently developing 'sore saddle'? Are biker shorts helpful in this arena? If so, do you have any recommendations?

HI Lori,


The "sore seat syndrome" is common, and as Jean mentioned, it does go away after 3 - 4 rides.

Thanks, everyone...


I went to Dick's Sporting Goods the other night and bought a pair of padded cycling shorts. I have not done another spinning w/o yet, but most likely will this next week.


I was doing some research and have a question...is it REALLY true that you're not supposed to wear underwear with them?!? I'm thinking that's kinda, um...gross, not to mention awkward. Not to mention what if the unthinkable happens (e.g. the seams rip or, pardon me for being kinda grotesque...menstruation---obviously one would wear a tampon or a cup; but as we know, that doesn't catch everything).

One option would be to put a pantyliner in the crotch area.

As someone who spins a lot, I have to tell you although padded shorts aren't stylish, um...panty line under em?

I don't spin regularly anymore, but I am pretty sure I can go to a class and not have a sore butt, once you get used to the seat it stays with you always, even if don't go on a regular basis anymore.

The pantiliner will move around because of the fabric of the shorts, and if you sweat a lot it will not stay adhered at all.

As iamamy says, I'd go without.

Gosh, you guys are more fashion conscious than I am. :D If I am comfy with undies and bike shorts with a dreaded panty line, TFB! (too fill-in-the-blank bad) I'm going to workout, not go on a date.

(Most of the spin classes I've gone to have been dark so this probably does matter. You'd have to have night vision goggles to see anybody's butt during class.)
