Review: Hoo Ha Ride Glide

Friends, it was only last summer that I took the bold move of heading out on my bicycle sans-unders. For guys this may have been a no-brainer but for girls, it seems to be more of a concern to be out and about without proper undergarments.

Since then I have stuck to the first brand I purchased, which was also the only brand that the local bike shop had in stock that didn’t make me feel more than slightly awkward plunking down in front of the guy at the counter.

Until recently.

When I was preparing for the Elephant Rock Ride in Colorado, the shop had trial sizes of my usual brand … and Hoo Ha Ride Glide. Intrigued, I picked up a few for the long ride. I ended up using the first packet the following day on 10 mile mountain bike ride and immediately noticed the cooling sensation, which told me it was working. I also noticed the exceptionally pleasant smell.

I didn’t bother to ask my companions if they could also smell it because there really isn’t an easy way to ask if your booty cream smells nice.

The first ride was fine, nothing special … but it was enough to prompt me to pick up a full-size bottle. Anymore, it’s my go-to ride cream. It’s not too thick, lasts quite a while, and smells nice. I like that it’s formulated for women and the trial sizes come in environmentally-friendly packaging. Plus it’s quite a conversation piece when the conversation inevitably turns to chamois creams (what, you don’t talk about that stuff on your group rides?).

  1. I started using chamois cream this year finally. And here’s another use: It’s great for your feet!!! My feet had seen better days, dried and cracked. But man, put this stuff on and a sock over the foot before bed, do this for a week and your feet are transformed!

  2. I don’t use cream. I can’t think of why I’d need it. I think it was originally used when shamys were made of leather, and then it was used to keep the leather supple, thereby preventing chafing…

    1. I think it’s a personal preference. Historically yes, creams were used because the chamois was leather and it kept it soft and supple. For me, anything over 20 miles is more comfortable with cream.

      1. Interesting. WIll you PM more details? I don’t think I know anyone else who uses it. I’m interested in the difference you think it makes.

  3. Hmmm … this is new to me. I have not used any creams on my rides. The bottom I have has a great chamois pad that is anti chaffing (for the most part) … then again, I have not ridden in a couple months…wahhh.

    But when I get back into it … perhaps this is something new to look in to? Ack … likely this will not occur until next year.

    Anyway, nice to be able to comment on your post again *smiles*

    1. Aw Kate – you’ll be back soon enough. Keep on kickin’ ass.

      I prefer cream when I ride but just as many don’t bother. I have good quality chamois but after about 20 miles I start to get hot spots. I’ve found cream keeps things running smoothly. :)
