    Why would you do that though? That's only if you slip off the pedals somehow. What hurts worse is when the other pedal comes up and hits you in the shin.

    most bike riders wear shoes that lock on the pedals for more power and have to unlock them before you stop or will fall over when you stop.

    Yeah, don't use those. I've never liked them. I usually wear sandals to ride a bicycle. I haven't slipped off the pedals since I was a kid, but I've still got the scars on my shins.

    No, but I've found jockey shorts with some spandex work a lot better than my usual boxers for bike riding. Mind you, with my low hangers, there's a lot to contain . . . .

    Are you riding a mountain bike and doing stunts or jumping off things while riding around town on your bike? Do you have an ergonomically designed bicycle seat for men, mounted on your bike, rather than the standard seat that came with it. The ergonomical seats are better for riding on and more comfortable.

    Just regular cycling shorts will do wonders.

    What about compression shorts? Wouldn't that be enough support for biking!

    Wear cycling shorts. Put your balls so in it that they don't flapp to the right or left.
    Put your dick pointing up. You wouldn't get any problems. Be sure that the cycling short is not to big.

    Jocks are good for many sports, but aren't designed for contact with bicycle seats. Briefs suck, too, because of the friction of the seams rubbing between your torso and the bicycle seat. Good quality padded cycling shorts are the ticket. I like the Pearl Izumi brand. Wear them as is with no underwear. Lift you balls and dick up before you sit on the seat, and you'll be fine. The ergonomically designed seat with the channel down the center is a great thing, too. If you have the right gear for riding, you'll like it that much more.

    Cycling shorts are the only way to go. Pearl Izumi makes nice ones. I have the Fox campus short. really breathable mesh cycling shorts with some regular shorts over top.

    Cycling tights work well. I pick my balls up an tuck my cock to the left. I ride either a bike or a spin bike six days a week and hadn't needed a cup yet.

    Absolutely not. A cup typically floats in a jock or compression shorts. It may press against the groin are but without much force. Riding a bike with a cup would put a lot of weight on the cup and the frequent movement would definitely cause painful damage to the body.

    No cup needed for cycling, but a good fitting jock, boxer briefs, or compression shorts / cycling shorts, will do the job well.

    I often suffer with saddle nuts (Sore / squashed balls) when cycling, and took me ages to find something that worked for me, and found that either a jock or boxer briefs / army trunk styles from C-in2, to work very well for me.
