    Best ever Chamois Cream...

    I ran out of Assos and my ass was tender in the shower the missus had some Neals Yard 'Macerated Calendula Oil' in the bathroom left over from being pregnant...gave myself a good oily rub down and the next day it was as if I hadn't ridden.

    I've started applying two squirts of it before riding for a couple of weeks and it's been a revelation!

    (The long term effects of using hippy remedies have yet to be seen)



    Apparently Calendula is a natural anti-inflammatory antiseptic flower, it's suspended in sunflower oil which I suppose has a lubricating anti chaffing effect.




    Just thought I'd pass on the tip...

    And you, a new(ish) dad. Everyone knows Sudocrem is the ultimate weapon against arse chaffage.

    Sudocrem you say, I will give that one a go!

    (Actually we've hardly had any cases of nappy rash to be honest though as we're using traditional cloth nappies.)

    Calendula oil is amazing for all sorts of sore bits - I discovered it when breast feeding, so in a similar fashion, if anyone suffers from jogger's nipple, there's your cure.

    Before cycling I like to tenderise my regions with a custom made gooch hammer, before liberally applying chilli oil and crushed gravel to the swollen undercarriage.

    My physio recommended Calendula oil for my ankle. Not used it myself as I thought she was barking mad!
