Different Types of Bike Shorts

When it comes to finding the right cycling shorts, there are a few things you'll want to take into consideration. First, think about the climate you'll be riding in. If it's hot outside, you'll want shorts that are made with breathable fabric. If it's cold, you might want tights or shorts with a liner. Second, consider the amount of padding you need. If you're going to be riding long distances, you'll want more padding. Finally, look for material that wicks sweat away from your skin and is durable so they don't rip easily. 

There are many options out there to choose from and we have just what you're looking for. Padded cycling shorts help protect against chafing and offer additional cushioning when biking longer distances. With many options available, we've got everything covered - plus our Elastic Interface Women's Specific Pad offers added protection while still being comfortable enough to wear under clothes during everyday activities.

Finding the Right Fit

When it comes to finding the right cycling shorts, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind.
First, consider the padding. You'll want something that's comfortable and won't chafe.
Second, think about the material. You'll want something that breathes well and wicks away sweat.
Third, make sure the shorts fit well. They should be snug but not too tight.
Fourth, consider the length. Some people prefer shorter shorts while others like longer ones that cover more of their legs.

 Whatever your preference, we have what you're looking for. If you've got your eye on padded tights, they come in four different lengths as well. Stop by Birds on Bikes today and see what we have in store for you!

Whether you need them for commuting or going out for a leisurely ride through town with friends and family, we’ve got just what you’re looking for. We offer waist sizes up to 138cm so no matter how large or small your waist is, there will be something right up your alley.

Which Fabric is Best?

There are a few things you'll want to consider when finding the right cycling shorts. The first is the fabric. There are a few different options out there, each with their own benefits. A common option is spandex, which is lightweight and breathable. Another popular choice is Lycra, which offers more compression and support. 

Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which fabric is best for your needs. What do you like? What will make your bike ride more comfortable? It doesn't matter if you're shopping for women's bicycle shorts or bike bib shorts padded, we have what you need. Find your perfect pair today!

How do I Wash My Padded Bike Shorts?

Padded bike shorts are a necessary evil for many cyclists. They help prevent saddle sores and chafing, but they can also be a pain to wash. Here's a step-by-step guide to washing your padded cycling shorts so they'll last longer and stay comfortable.

  • Rinse your shorts in cool water after each ride. This will help remove sweat and bacteria that can cause odors.
  • Wash your shorts in a mild detergent designed for activewear. Avoid using hot water, as this can break down the fabric and cause the padding to deteriorate.
  • Hang your shorts to dry, or tumble dry on low heat. Again, avoid high heat, as this can damage the fabric and padding.
