the good news is that you're not as likely to bang up your knees/elbows as you are your upper thigh/hip/butt.

Quick trick for protecting that area is to slip an old race number into your shorts (or tyvek material, like Fedex pak). But if you are worried about your elbows, I think there is a tennis brace that may work (Futuro, Scholl?)

Otherwise, part of the roadie culture is NAKEDNESS, so just imagine everyone else is naked and you'll relax ;)

Of course, the worse kind of rash is tire burn, but I don't want to gore you out with that idea...
