You may have the same problem as I do during strength training. My trainer is constantly reminding me not to bend my wrists but keep them straight when lifting weights. It puts more strain on the wrists when you bend them, longer rides with a bent wrist could lead to soreness or pain.

well it may be that its early in the season, if you didn't ride much over winter you may have sore wrists among other sore parts. i rode some over the winter,but my first few outdoor longer rides on my road bike caused some discomfort and numbness. if changing hand postions doesn't work and the bike is set up for you alright then it must be time for a new bike (good excuse LOL). it may just be early in the season, try what people have recommended and if not then maybe its time for a bike.
I also have carpal tunnel, and I've found that riding my mountain bike (straight bar) causes more pain than my road bike. I bought some fingerless glove with gel on the palms and in between the thumb and index finger that have helped quite a bit.
