I ride 3 to 4 times a week. Tucking hell no! Maybe one day I won't have to!

I can't imagine trying to do any cycling while tucked!
:icon_yikes:  Wow, yeah!  Even in my HRT-shrunken state,, that would be "uncomfortable".

Avid, for the past few years I've been down to just commuting but as recently as 2011 I was still doing 140+ mile rides on back-back weekends.

I'm really hankering to be back in the saddle, if wary of difficulty expected in acclimating to riding post op. Any tips on how to make that easier would be appreciated!

I'm *really* looking for to no longer presenting masculine hardware when wearing bike shorts. Ugh, that was the only thing about riding I consistently disliked.

Avid cyclist here.  Shave legs and all, LOL!  Mostly road but last year discovered the joys of gravel, bought a gravel bike, and haven't looked back.  Two carbon road bikes, one steel road bike, one mountain bike, one city commuter, one gravel bike one steel road bike "on loan" to a son, a cross bike "on loan" to a daughter, N+1.  My wife rides too.  I usually do a couple of centuries a year, both metric and imperial but this year didn't manage one.

When my gender issues really get me down, a good hard ride really helps. It's really hilly around here, any gravel ride over 60 km is going to involve at least 1000 metres of climbing on grades up to 20%

I cycle too.

Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Avid mountain biker. Used to be an avid roadie. I was really into triathlons in my 20s and put a ton of miles on my road bike. In the last few years I have found more enjoyment mountain biking.

With winter coming, I’ll be switching to the indoor trainer and Zwift. And I’ll use the elliptical on days when I feel like being out of the saddle.
