Welcome to the mini version of Saddle, Sore. When I started writing this book, a big part of the reason was because I know how hard it is being a young junior just starting out in cycling—and how much harder it is as a girl with no one to talk to about your personal questions! Asking my dad about pads versus tampons was out of the question, and I had no idea who to talk to about my cycling shorts, or why my underwear was bunching in them (oops!). It was a steep learning curve, and every pro woman that I speak to says the exact same thing.
So this is the condensed version of Saddle, Sore, designed to help you a bit along the way. If you’re not a junior, you should check out the full version, and if you know a junior, definitely pass this link along!
