Once upon a time I was an ultra-distance cyclist. I came from the racing side of the sport into longer distances. Racing, while not the same thing, still demands a lot of saddle time. One thing matters above everything else: comfort on the bike. Find it, and your riding experience will be transformed.

"Sit bones" refers to the base of your pelvic bones. Find a saddle that supports them.

Don't be in a hurry to get into head-down racerboy position. Start with the bars up where you can tolerate them for a decent period of time, and work your way down.

When you think of yourself on your road bike, think of a horse. A horse hangs its torso between its shoulders and its hips. That's your ultimate goal.

Good luck!
