Oh and grip the tank with your knees as you brake, that reduces wrist and hand pressure.

Hydration and nutrition definitely help, but stretching is a big one. And like was said before, in 2 weeks your body will adapt and you won't be as sore when you ride.

If you still want more, buy an aftermarket gel seat. Pricey, but they help!

Just curious, what kind of bike was it and how tall are you?

And I'm saying nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today

Until I'm parking in an ally just hoping that my is safe.

There is such a thing as overhydrating. The first time I used a water camelback on a 2 day trip to Austin, I got terrible full-body cramps and believe I drank too much water (water poisoning) that flushed out everything from my system. I haven't used the water camelback since.

Like the others said, it'll get better after you put in more hours on the bike..

You're probably just tensing up whether you realize or not. Once you feel more confident, you'll learn to relax a lot more.

Stretching does help
