There's a lot of things that must be just right to cycle in relative comfort, especially on long distances--saddle position, bike fit, clothing, etc. The more you ride the more you learn what works best for you. Best wishes on your ride next month! And thank you for your comments. Be safe out there!

I really appreciate anyone that can ride that far on a bike. My longest bike trek (not anywhere NEAR a century ride) left me incapable of sitting properly for nearly a week afterwards, even with a gel seat, female-ergonomic and all the rest. OW! I'm thinking of doing a registry ride in Calgary next month. Great article! Keep up the good work!
