Quote from 'Road Cycling Skills by Ed Pavelka'

"Avoid the rookie mistake of wearing underwear beneath cycling shorts. This defeats the idea of special-purpose cycling shorts."

Underwear can cause rubbing which can lead to saddle sores.

You just need stuff that fits.
Definitely, no underwearpmf1

Shorts are designed to be worn without under wear. You will only get saddle sores if you wear underwear. It'll get wet and chafe your skin.

I put my shorts on first. Then for a splash of colour, I follow with the underwear.
