Pants for Uni?

I have noticed that selection of pants(or shorts) can make a large difference in
comfort. Does anyone have any suggestions for increased comfort and ease of use
ie. shorts vs. pants, cycling shorts, etc.

Thanks.

The most comfortable thing to wear would be padded cycling shorts. (They should
not be worn with any underwear, as that would defeat the purpose of wearing the
cycling shorts themselves.)

Over the calf socks can provide minimal protection for the lower leg, that
ordinary long cotton pants (blue jeans) might otherwise provide.

Long cotton pants can be worn over the cycling shorts. Full leg length cycling
pants would be a viable alternative.

Yes, I discuss this in my book ANYONE CAN RIDE A UNICYCLE (p 8.)

I can highly recommend chamois (real or synthetic) padded lycra cycling
shorts. I can’t suggest a particular brand (though I remember one of my pairs
was Nalini or Naline). I’ve got 2 relatively cheap pairs, (25 quid each,
about US$35-40 I think). I don’t bother with them if I’m just riding a few
miles, but for long distance rides and workshops they make quite a
difference.
