I was starting to make a list of things to not forget to pack and I suddenly remembered CHAMOIS CREAM.
For very long bike rides I use a cheap alternative to chamois cream. I buy Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. It’s a diaper rash cream; and in my opinion, as a mother of 2, it’s the best on the market. You can get a tube for $5-6 at pretty much any store (Walmart, grocery store, Target, etc.).
